Aluminum bends. This is true.

Reports are sprouting up all over the Internet today, showing photo after photo of damaged iPhones.  Allegedly, these iPhones are bent simply by being kept in the front pockets while their users are sitting for longer periods of time.

According to users at the Macrumors forums, the damage is occurring to both iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models, with the data skewing toward the larger Plus variety.

Having seen this happen before with the iPhone 5/5s, it does not surprise me.  Alloys such as aluminum will not retain their shape past tolerances, and folks wear jeans that are much too tight.  That combination may prove tricky for some iPhone owners.

My guess is that this isn’t the last time we’ll hear about this.
