We've been all over the #BendGate issue with the bending, or warping iPhone 6 Plus smartphone from Apple, which is bending from sitting in consumers' pockets. But don't worry, Apple has now finally replied, saying that only nine people have contacted them with problematic iPhone 6 Plus'.

The Cupertino-based iGiant has said that their iPhones are designed, engineered and manufactured to be both beautiful, and sturdy. Both of the next-gen iPhones feature a precision engineered unibody enclosure that is constructed from machining a custom grade of 6000 series anodized aluminum, which is tempered for extra strength.

Apple continues its PR campaign against #BendGate, adding that its phones feature stainless steel and titanium inserts to reinforce high stress locations, as well as using the strongest glass in the smartphone industry - yet, it's not enough to stop bending iPhones. Apple adds that it chooses these high quality materials and construction methods very carefully for both their strengh, and durability. Apple also performs rigorous tests throughout the entire development cycle, which includes 3-point bending, pressure point cycling, sit, torsion and user studies.
