    After five months of ownership, and being in an Incipio dual layer case, I noticed today my 6 Plus has an ever so slight bend. Noticeable most when you face it screen down.

    I don't know if Apple replaces them, but I can't really be bothered going through the hassle of trying to get it replaced. Was wondering if the Incipio Trestle case would fix it

    My thinking is that the rods would eventually knock out the kink... is it worth a shot or a waste of money?

    You could likely bend the phone back to straight. The case, at best, would offer some protection against more bending. Sounds like the bend is so slight it is hardly worth the worry.

    Your thread doesn't seem to address the title, however yes. It is generally accepted that the 6s will address the problem of bending phones. At least for the majority of cases.

    The new alloy of aluminium (7000 series) along with reinforcements in the old shell weak spots, i.e volume buttons, means the new phone should be a lot less likely to bend, which despite what anyone claims, was definitely a problem with current models.

    Edit: my bad, you were just referring to the 6 series.

    Take it to Apple, if not try ironing it.

    Apple has the best warranty service. I don't think it'd be a hassle

    I'd look to get apple to replace it. I don't think there's any other solution that will work,

    They should do it free of charge now it is a known thing, get the camera done while you're at it?

    I bent it back. It's pretty much straight now, an ever so slight bend but only noticeable if you really inspect it.

    I'd rather it not bend again, so that case should provide sufficient protection?
