Default bent iPhone 6 - 24-09-2014, 17:42

Experts are divided over whether Apple should respond to claims that its new iPhone 6 handsets are prone to becoming bent when carried in trouser pockets.

Several members of the public have posted photos to the MacRumors site that appear to show the problem. A reporter for the news site also reported his phone had warped.

Other mobiles have bent in the past.

And it is not yet clear if the new iPhones' aluminium shells make them particularly vulnerable.

Even so, the claims have been reported across tech blogs as well as mainstream media including the Independent, the Washington Post, India Today and the Sydney Morning Herald.

In one apparently real quote there, an expert is quoted as suggesting that modern phones are not designed to be put in pockets, and anyone who does so is reckless.

Inevitably, there are also some joke and spoof responses to this news.
