Its unfortunate that the iPhone 6 bending issue has been blown far out of proportion. Kids are vandalizing demo units in Apple retail stores and idiots on YouTube are forcefully bending them to increase ad revenue. It has made those of us who are legit Apple customers with warped iPhones extremely hard to be understood or believed. I want to create a thread where iPhone 6 and 6 plus owners can thoughtfully discuss our warped iPhones. I know thats unrealistic but there must be a legitimate explanation why this is happening on a select few devices. Its time we stand together and ignore all the baseless accusations. Id like to hear from those of you who have warped / warping/ bent iPhones. My Apple store has already agreed to repair or exchange my device and politely asked that I remove my bent iPhone 6 photo from Facebook. My iPhone 6 first appeared to be warped after charging it on Sept 28. It was in a hard case on a flat desk over night with the official apple lightning cable and the 120AC to 5VDC 1A charger. My phone is slightly warped near the sim card tray and the bend is very apparent when I place a flat object (credit card) against the back and hold it up to a light source. This is where Id like to hear from those who didn't neglect or forcefully bend their iPhone 6 and have the same problem or from people who specialize in design or the engineering of alloy materials, electronics or firmware development. There has to be a reasonable explanation for this to occur in units where negligence is not the primary cause. Could the chemical composition in the battery be faulty in some units and cause internal swelling? (it's certainly happened in iOS devices before). Could the internal firmware that controls the charge cycle be a point of failure causing overheating? Could the heat generated during the charging phase cause the aluminum to expand slightly faster than the digitizer and cause a permanent misalignment in the chassis? Could the alloy chassis be reverting to its state prior to machining? Could the stainless steel Apple logo influence the aluminum when heat is applied? I think these are the types of questions we need to start asking each other. Its worth noting that I have never sat on any of my iPhones or dropped one, ever! Ive always carried my iPhone 6 in my front jacket pocket while walking. When I drive I place the iPhone 6 in a secure mount in my truck and I know other people out there have this same problem. Its just very difficult to raise our voices over all the complete nonsense. I hope somewhere in the vastness of the internet there is someone with enough intellect and intrigue to hear me out and put forth additional challenging questions or some answers regarding this unfortunate and mismanaged issue. One more thing there is no such thing as Bendgate. Gate implies scandal and this is not a scandal; its just a unique flaw in a select very few units. If anything its more relate-able to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge when in the 1940s Americas best and brightest engineers failed to understand how a slight breeze could influence steel.
