Maybe not from Apple, but almost certainly from some enterprising entrepreneur. I wonder if iJeans has been reserved as a trademark by Apple? If not….

I'm sure there will be some company that will capitalize in this, in one way or another.

Or, people could just wise up and put a friggin case on their 6+ before putting it in their skinny jeans.

Glad I own a G2.

Yea, its made of "premium" materials. The nerve of some instigating that the infallible apple could be in the wrong.

Really, we should appreciate apple for making iBend technology for new iPhone 6+, it's an extra feature that represent on iphone 6+ over iphone 6. By the way not most phones that can bent and usable like that right? If anybody try to bend their phone, I wonder what the result it would be? bent or break into half?

Nothing a little blue pill wouldn't fix! Apple working on embedding some powdered Viagra into the thin aluminium frame......!

Look how the Galaxy Note 3 fared:

Sums up a lot about the iPhone 6+ build quality....

Apple should learn their lessons and increase the phone's thickness next time.....
