6 Tips to Avoid iPhone 6 Plus Bending
In the mid of this crisis we have five tips that significantly lower the chance of joining the iPhone 6 Plus BendGate:
1. Use a Case: Although it comes with the usual side effects a case will protect your phone from higher bending forces.
2. Avoid Tight Pants: Say goodbye to skinny jeans or slim fit trousers if you wish to protect your iPhone 6 Plus.
3. Pouch Time: To be extremely safe avoid storing your device in a trouser pocket. Use your large jacket pockets or a pouch.
4. Upside down: If you love taking chances, at least dive your iPhone on its head in your pocket. The weak-point seems to be near the volume buttons, so you wish that the flex forces when sitting down are aimed towards the home button area.
5. Cool down: It’s wise to wait for your iPhone to cool down before placing it in your pocket. Warmed-up Aluminium could become even more vulnerable to bending stress forces!
6. Choose iPhone 6: If you haven’t upgraded already, choose the iPhone 6 instead. The smaller size makes it less bendable.
