He would kick anyone who asks "what would steve... ?" right in the nuts.

Or at least I hope he would :rolleyes:

Is anyone able to ask him? It seems like a lot of people know him personally here.

The more interesting scenario is the idea of Steve reacting to the iOS bugs. He would have flipped some lids. Think of the whole MobileMe thing and how loudly he reacted to that.

Who gives a f what he'd think? He's DEAD. D.E.A.D. DEAD! NEVER COMING BACK! Why does everybody always bring him up for? Who gives a f?

The bend issue is here since the iphone 5

I remember doing a bend test of my iphone 5 before I accept it in the store some 2 or 3 years ago when they release it

I think that Steve Jobs was dead at the time of the iphone 5, but if he has seen the bend issue maybe he has changed the aluminum for liquidmetal or other material to avoid this issue

Jobs was out of this world and he always was pushing everyone for the best. He likes to have everything perfect

If he's like me he'd think geez what a bunch knuckleheads. Don't people know how to look after their property nowadays.
^this

I didn't know him, I don't know a whole lot about him but my guess would be this. Except, it doesn't really matter. Unfortunately, he's dead. It doesn't really matter what he would think. Not even one little bit.

Stupid thread. It's obvious the genius would tell u the same thing he did on that so called antenna gate. You're carrying it wrong. Which is truest of true. No one buys a phone and stuffs it in their pocket and expect nothing to happen. Doesn't even make sense. The iPhone 6+ is just too superior to anything out there and haters just love to hate the champ!

Would he be bent over this?

Had Jobs been alive, I suspect the problem would still exist, but not be as prevalent. I don't think he would have allowed Jony Ive to keep making the iPhone thinner because of the protruding camera. A thicker iPhone would likely not bend as easily.

But Jobs is gone. The speculation is moot.
