The last thing you want to have happen to your brand-new smartphone is have it bend out of shape. But unfortunately, that's exactly what a lot of iPhone 6 Plus owners are reporting as happening.
The issue was brought to light on the Apple blog and forum site MacRumours, where users started highlighting their issues with bent smartphones on Tuesday. Shortly after, a blogger with Geek.com reported seeing the same issue, and even showed the damage that had been done with this GIF:
The two users who posted to the MacRumours forums reported that the iPhone 6 Plus had been placed in a pocket, and then after several hours of sitting, the phone showed a visible bend near the volume buttons on the phone. User hanzoh reported that he placed the phone in his front pocket, drove four hours to a wedding, sat for dinner, did some dancing, then drove four hours back. When he took it out of his front pocket and placed it on the coffee table, the phone appeared to be slightly bent.
