Last week, thousands of people flocked to Apple stores to invest in the latest genius item: the iPhone 6.
The iPhone 6 is accompanied by its big sister, the iPhone 6+. Together, they are faster, larger and thinner than previous iPhones, with better cameras, better displays and – the best thing of all – a battery that lasts longer than five hours.
Unfortunately, it seems that Apple didn’t quite manage to iron out all the iPhone kinks before releasing it to the general public and making us fork out $869+ for it.
Here are the problems that iPhone 6 fans are currently experiencing… and not all of them are ones we might have predicted.
1. It bends.
Yesterday, a MacRumors forum reported that some iPhone users have bent their phones, simply by having the phones in their pockets.
And no – they are not supposed to bend. There are other phones, made by other companies… that have been designed to be flexible… the iPhone is definitely not one of them.
The entire issue first came to light after a user named Hanzoh posted in a forum, complaining that he’d had his new iPhone in the front pocket of his suit for 18 hours… and, well, look what happened to it:
MacRumours user DevinPitcher had a similar story and picture to share:
The good news is that the phone still works, even if a little bent. The bad news is that IT’S JUST NOT SUPPOSED TO BEND.
Thankfully, Apple’s Head of Technology, Matt Warman, offered him a solution: “It’s not actually spontaneously starting to curve, this is a single piece of metal and glass that if you put enough pressure on it, yeah you can bend it but that doesn’t mean that it is Apple’s fault… I think that if you have a bent iPhone it is probably time to panic about how tight your trousers are.”
