No More ‘Bendgate’ with the Next iPhone

  1. A new video shows that the next iPhone will be ever-so-slightly thicker, making it safe from bending in rear pockets.
    Apple’s iPhone 6 encountered something it couldn’t always conquer: men’s backsides.
    When the phone came out last fall, some customers reported that the phone slightly bent after they sat on it because it was in their back pocket. Dubbed “ Please or Register to view links,” the problem made its fear-mongering rounds in the press at the time.

    But now, a new Please or Register to view links, shows that Apple’s next iPhone (if we can believe this is it), will be ever-so-slightly thicker, which will avoid any kind of bending. The phone’s back panel in the video is 138.26mm x 67.16mm, compared to the iPhone 6 which is 138.09mm x 66.91mm. Though very small, it’s that difference that could prevent the infamous bending, according to Unbox Therapy’s Lewis Hilsenteger.

    The back panel in Hilsenteger’s video seems to match Please or Register to view links, adding to the probability that the next iPhone will indeed look nearly identical to the iPhone 6. Apple will reported hold an event on September 9 this year, where this upcoming phone would be revealed if all rumors align.
