Apple Responds to Bending iPhone 6 Plus Devices

Earlier this week we reported on the first three users showing bent iPhone 6 Plus devices. It took social media by storm and the issues with iOS 8 completed the shitstorm for Apple.

It took Apple a few days to comment, today they released a statement and said that only nine customers have contacted them about a bent iPhone 6 Plus.

“IPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus meet or exceed all of our high quality standards to endure everyday, real life use,” Apple said.

Apple also pointed out that they have done extensive testing which included bending, a certain amount of pressure and real life scenarios such as sitting.

Given the fact that Apple has seen record sales for the iPhone 6 series and only nine users have reported an issue so far, the whole things is being blown out of proportion. We have seen issues with many other smartphones but the hype surrounding an Apple launch is always unmatched – for better or worse.

Investors though were not to pleased with the recent developments as Apple took a hit during trading today and declined 3.81%.
