Apple has been having a tough time with the bending iPhone 6 Plus, but it looks like German magazine ComputerBild.de is having an even tougher time, with Apple reportedly banning the magazine from official events after its coverage of #BendGate.

 

 

ComputerBild.de is claiming that Apple has stopped sending them test devices, as well as revoking invites to any future Apple launch events after they posted a video showing how the iPhone 6 Plus could be bent with your bare hands. As you can see in the video above, the iPhone 6 Plus is easily damaged through bending just below the volume button.

 

The site has talked with Apple's PR department in Germany, which refused to answer any questions about the bending iPhone 6 Plus, telling the site that it "will not get any testing devices and no invites to official events any more". ComputerBild.de then wrote an open letter to Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, asking him if this was the reaction that his company wants to have to publications that are covering the issue, like we have been - I still ask: seriously, what's Apple going to do with #BendGate.
