Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) said that it will replace bent iPhone 6 handsets. Several customers complained that the iPhone 6 Plus bent in their pockets. The bent iPhone 6 Plus devices are portrayed as a #bendgate issue on social media. The bent iPhone 6 Plus devices are still operational. The iPhone 6 Plus devices generally bend in the middle or top of the handset. The bends are formed when the iPhone 6 Plus is placed under pressure like when a user sits for a period of time with the device in their pocket. The regular iPhone 6 does not have the same issue. The bent iPhone 6 Plus devices will be replaced if it passes a visual inspection by Genius Bar employees.
