It seems Apple will not be able to rid itself of "BendGate" anytime soon, after saying just nine iPhone 6 Plus units were bent, with a website showing 300 bent devices. One of the Nine wanted to collect photos of bent iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units from customers, and while there wasn't a lot of publicity to promote the website, more than 300 photos were collected.

It's possible some iPhone owners haven't reported the problem - or are unaware it has happened - but considering the millions of devices sold, Apple is quietly trying to resolve the problem that has hit a small number of owners.

"We are most definitely not anti-Apple though and I am a massive Apple product user myself and an iPhone 6 Plus owner (yes... it bent)," according to the website's founder.
