Uh-oh. Apple has a problem on its hands with skinny jean-wearing hipsters. According to reports online, the massive iPhone 6 Plus has an “unplanned situational curvature” problem. That means the device starts LITERALLY BENDING and, thus, becoming curved after people sit with it in their pocks thanks to hipsters who wear tight skinny jeans. The first account popped up on a French Apple fan site, and then more started complaining about the issue on MacRumors. Here’s one horror story from a non-hipster who was wearing a suit at a wedding:
Yesterday, I left at 10am with the iPhone in my left FRONT pocket of my suit pants. I drove 4 hours to a wedding, which also involved a lot of sitting during dinner etc but also 2-3 hours of dancing. I left at 2am and went to bed, driving home 4 hours back.
So in total, the 6 Plus was about 18 hours in my pocket while sitting mostly.
As I lay it on the coffee table and sat down on the couch to relax from the drive (yes, sitting again ), I saw the reflection of the window in the iPhones slightly distorted.
The First World Problem has already earned the name #Bendgate and comes from iPhone 6 owners who insist they weren’t sitting on their phones. Conclusion? Their damn skinny jeans are too damn tight. Maybe wear something a little more comfortable?
Or just be a true Bro and move to Android. Stupid iHipsters.

Love the apologists saying “well duh, just don’t put your iPhone in your pocket!” What, am I supposed to buy a purse? #bendgate

If you own an iPhone 6 Plus, you should also own cargo pants. #BendGate
