Apple has broken its silence on “bend-gate.” Apple told CNBC that only 9 customers have complained about their iPhones bending.
“With normal use a bend in iPhone is extremely rare,” Apple said in a statement. The company said that it performs “rigorous tests throughout the entire development cycle,” that include “3-point bending, pressure point cycling, sit, torsion, and user studies.”
“iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus meet or exceed all of our high quality standards to endure everyday, real life use,” the statement said.
A number ofiPhone 6 Plus users have reported that their phones can bend under pressure, for instance from being carried around in a pocket.
