    I don't care if they publicly respond. I only care about the design and that they help their customers. They are clearly doing both.
    They always do with every iPhone...the iPhone wouldn't sell like it does if there weren't improvements on new iterations for the customer.

    And you only don't care because you now see the reality of it.

    You believed wrong...(shocking)

    https://www.apple.com/pr/library/201...-iPhone-4.html

    ...to compare, here is Apple's response to "Bendgate"...



    ...essentially echoing what we've been saying in this thread that you've tried to counter over and over again.

    Your interpretation of the use of the higher grade aluminum is misguided and assumptive.
    If I remember reading correctly, Steve Jobs flew back to Cupertino in the middle of his family vacation in Hawaii to address antennagate.

    Samsung will probably copy that feature once they realize 6+ can do that.

    Everyone loses (especially the instigators - that not winning keeps us posting).

    I don't think it'll be an issue, but I just noticed that my Plus has a slight bend after scrutinizing it. Nothing to write home about, and nothing to complain about that's for sure. Still, it just shows you that these things will bend even if they are seldom put into pockets or exposed to anything that you think would cause it.

    Might be worth getting a replacement if eligible. Cheers.

    I don't think so. It's barely noticeable only because I took the time to look for it. It might have been there before for all I know. I'm not sure how it happened, but I will just try to ignore it until it gets worse. Then I'll think about getting it replaced. For now it's no big deal. Thanks for the tip though.

    Derek Kessler today on iMore "So while they're not explicitly acknowledging the "bendgate" issues that affected the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple's clearly taken the lesson of brutal consumer durability testing to heart and made sure that the new iPhones are stronger. If that means that creating a new iPhone that's more resistant to bending means it has to be a smidgen heavier and a hair thicker, so be it."

    It never was, so I don't expect it to be an issue with the iPhone 6S Plus

    Who's pretending anything? It is what it is. Someone's opinion. I thought it was on topic.

    Hopefully not but people always seem to find something to ***** about. iMore will hopefully be there to call the situation out as it is when something comes up.

    You shared the quote in this thread as a backing to your opinion on this subject...as if it gave your side of the argument more validity. I was simply pointing out that it didn't...if you already understood that, fantastic! My post is there for others to reference.

    So that opinion offends you so much you must comment. I think you are incapable of not getting the last word which gives me a little chuckle.

    Sharing a shared opinion from the Managing Editor of Mobile Nations - on topic is satisfying. You can't take that away.

    I'm not offended at all...I was just providing clarity. If that kind of thing satisfies your agenda, enjoy it! I know I enjoy responding to it.

    Whether "bengate" was a problem or not, Apple felt the need for improvment to satisfy their customers, so they improved it....SIMPLE.
