I know a lot of people around here are getting really tired of these threads about bending, but, even if it's very slight, it's manifested in a number of early adopters' phones, including my own. The bend is not so noticeable as to be a problem - I'm not even mad - but, trying something like this, it undoubtedly is shown to exist. So, aluminum is very soft, and I think this kind of thing is to be anticipated, as phones are exposed to all sorts of mishandling. My question is, following months of rumors suggesting a sapphire face, was Apple counting on a harder sapphire cover to keep the structure rigid? I understand why they would end up using glass, since the Apple Watch, cameras and Touch ID sensors are probably straining their supply at the moment, but it begs the question - was this a late-stage oversight?
