    I bought a 6 on launch day and had zero issues. I bought a 6 plus a month ago and now notice that it wobbles in the case. I am currently using a UAG case and it wobbles on a table. Corner to corner not side to side. This is why I saying warped and not bent. I put it in my NGP case and it does the same. I can twist it just a bit and it goes away but returns the next day.

    Front pocket only. Let the flaming begin.

    But this is a new viewpoint since I can say I had a 6 for 4 months with no issues using it the same way. I have AppleCare and it's not that big a deal but has my OCD going wild.

    Yeah there's been a couple thread about this, several people have it, me included. Taking out of case, corner opposite of camera would move slightly when the front face down. Did it on multiple surfaces, and Genius Bar even confirmed it. Same as you, twist it and its good, but it comes back the next day.

    On a related note, one time I slammed the phone down on the table, half hit a towel, top half hit the table. It was in Apple leather case, but it was a pretty hard hit. It was wayyy warped. I twisted it back, and now after a week, it's back to factory condition. The phone bends itself back. :D

    If it really bothers you, Apple should be happy to exchange it for you. I opted not to, since the screen is good on this one, and I didn't want a yellow screen like some people have gotten multiple times.

    Maybe it was bent since the purchase, but you didn't notice.

    I only noticed this week when I would place it on my desk and see a wobble. At first I thought it was the case but then it did it with the other case too.

    A friend of mine with a 6 plus who broke his screen on day 2 to tell you a little about him has the same UAG case has zero wobble. 5 months old with replaced glass

    That's the reason I think it could have been slightly defective since the day you bought it.
    Take to the Apple store, I'm sure they are going to give you a new refurbished unit.

    Same with my 5S (though an entirely different animal). I've dropped it many times but it's never been out of the case so it remains in almost new condition.
