The Bendgate tragedy that centred around iPhone 6 Plus’ bending capabilities recently spiralled across social media, with users posting pictures of their bent devices. Disgruntled users agitated over this absurdity and were disappointed of their new purchase. Reports of the device’s screen cracking, when you manually try to unbend the phone also surfaced. In a bid to solve this dilemma, a start-up company called gTool has created a device called Panel Press that is solely designed to unbend your iPhone and get it back to its original shape.

South Africa based gTool is a company that claims to manufacture a range of tools that allow you to repair Apple iPhones, iPads or iPods without having to rely on conventional instruments. The Panel Press, created specifically to get your iPhone back to original shape works rather easily. The device has rubber beds where you have to place the iPhone symmetrically, and then press the beds together with the help of a cork screw, which will then unbend the phone. The company claims that the device works for the Apple iPhone 5, 5S, 6 and 6 Plus. Also Read - iOS 12.5.4 update: List of old iPhone, iPad models getting important 'security updates'
The inception of this device is a fallout of the Bendgate controversy. Apple has also attracted another absurd controversy about the device pulling out hair while making a call. Even with these controversies, the iPhone 6 Plus demand is on the rise and is touted to contribute to 60 percent of total iPhone device sales figures.
