Despite what Apple and Consumer Reports will like you to believe, it seems that iPhone 6 Plus does have a bending problem. The fresh evidence comes from an Apple Store located at UK, where two teens demonstrated how easy it is to warp the iPhone 6 Plus.

The 15-year olds went inside an Apple Store to test this new feature of the handset. We went into the Apple store, and we actually bent the iPhone 6 Plus,” explain one of the two teens. The two managed to tape the entire experience in a video. Do note that the video shakes a lot, though it is pretty understandable.

As seen in the footage, it didn t take the kids much of an effort to bend as well as detach the screen off the handset. The kids then went to an Apple employee to ask about the bending issue. The kids were told that this was just an “internet rumor”, as the new iPhone don’t bend. The kids say that they were caught by the Apple employees and even had to pay for the device.
This new video comes days after Lou of Unbox Therapy bent the phone. However, many claimed that his video was doctored, since the timing displayed on the phone didn’t sync with video s timeline. However, according to him, he had to take more than one shot to avoid glare, and he later did one more video to prove how easy it was to destroy the device.
Meanwhile, Apple has maintained its stance that its device is highly durable, and last week invited several journalists to tour its secret lab at Cupertino to check the various test procedures that its phones go through before getting the approval for sale. Apple s claims seem consistent with Consumer Reports, a non-profit organisation which found that iPhone 6 Plus was more durable than HTC One (M8) and several other phones including iPhone 6. Many people continue to believe this all is a conspiracy against the Apple to jeopardize new iPhones sales.
