The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Could Bend In Your Pocket

Bent iPhone 6

Owners of Apple’s new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are reporting that the thin aluminium construction has left some phone bent out of shape after carrying it in their pockets, a similar problem occurred with both previous iPhones the 5/5S.

The MacRumours forums and Geek reports a small but growing number’ of users on Twitter are complaining of a major design flaw that sees the smartphone body bend under pressure.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus chassis is milled from a solid piece of aluminium alloy. But the weak area of the phone appears to be around the volume buttons, where the frame is at its thinnest and creates a fulcrum point around which the phone bends.
