The iPhone 6 Bends?

The newly released iPhone 6 has been known to bend. Many posts to Instagram and Twitter have proved that the bending of the phone is not a feature, but tends to happen. Many people are furious when they place their iPhone into their pocket and when they pull it out, has a different shape and form.

The bending of the iPhone 6 is causing controversy between the users of the iPhone and Apple. Apple is arguing that "warping is extremely rare through normal use."

This issue will probably go away after the wave of people complaining decreases.
