The iPhone 6 bending or not, these #bendgate jokes are too funny!

The iPhone 6 bending or not, these #bendgate jokes are too funny!
It's not a proper major iPhone launch event if there isn't some issue to go viral and raise a major ruckus on social media. It's been a while since the iPhone 4 "antennagate" scandal rocked our worlds, and the iPhone 5's "scuffgate", but for equal parts good and bad, the iPhone 6 and its #bendgate issue are back to deliver love, hate, drama, and most importantly - jokes!

By posting these little gems of satire and having a shared laugh about it, we in no way give Apple a silk glove treatment in case it somehow failed to ensure its big, beautiful phone retains its form under the most regular stress a smartphone faces in its life - being carried in a pocket. Apple isn't one to slack off when such issues arise to tarnish its name, so we're expecting it to intervene soon. And we're not talking about patenting and making wider jeans.

He will pay the iFanboys to troll tech sites and Youtube with lag jokes and security jokes about Android.

Oopsy, making security jokes? I see your wee wee on your puny iPhone. :P

Unfortunately no one should care what tim cook feels, it is what the customers who got screwed by this that should be worried. This is likely a problem with all iPhone 6 pluses and will eventually come around to affect all of them given time. Apple isn't going to recall anything due to millions of products being affected and they likely will issue a rubber band case like in the case of antenna-gate. Oh well, hopefully they replace those handsets affected for free. Likely this will require a substantial redesign of the phone because they made it such a tight fit to begin with.

If you can't bend it, blend it. There's a blender for that

I realize most people here are making it look as if it's worse that it actually is, but the reality is it was bound to happen. It's not affecting that many devices and those that were affected already had some kind of weak spot. Did you see how much pressure it took to bend that phone in the video? Yea, you don't get that in real life situations.

Wired also passed a tip showing that placing the phone in your pocket, with the screen facing towards you easily averts this "flaw". The metal plate at the back of the phone is strong enough to withhold the pressure.

But yea, this is the internet and your eyeballs are all that matters.

Sine kind of weak spot? Yes, they're called volume controls and power button, and they're on ALL devices...!

Yes, it will take a deliberate effort to bend it like in the video, but numerous users are reporting slightly bent phones simply from keeping it in their pocket. It doesn't have to bend 4% to be deformed!

iIT WILL BEND WITH NORMAL FORCE your legs and body when you skip out on parts to make it lighter and thinner and use aluminium its going to happen to all, the thing is it depends on your jeans pocket if you have deep pockets no problem if you have medium or short pockets and the phone sticks out it will happen the stitching on the jeans pockets at the top is alot heavier duty then your iphone 6+

You dont have to put quotations around the word...flaw. Its an actual flaw. Anytime I have to put my phone in my pocket a certain way so it wont get bent....thats a flaw in the design.

I usually did that to keep the screen from getting scratched up or kept it in a pocket with no metal.

hahahahahahaha, did you see the video while trying to bend a NOTE 3 the similar way they bent and cracked the 6 plus? why should I buy it if I have to worry about bending it? some devices affected? dude the entire line up is affected it's a flow in the design not a defective part. wake up. and yes, I love the internet because it saves people from paying 1000$ over a 2012-built-like-craap-phone.

It was a hidden feature of an iPhone like many hidden features of iOS8.

But they didn't want their customer to find this feature but they found it.

This feature is called iBend and that's what Ive was thinking..
