It appears that the scandal behind the iPhone 6 Plus' #bendgate crisis has been blown out of proportion. Apple had responded to concerns that the iPhone 6 Plus' shell can bend under normal stress when being transported inside the pockets of pants by saying that the issue is so minimal that they've only received 9 complaints to date.
Apple had given its statement to CNBC and the news network had tweeted the news:
ALERT: Apple says only 9 customers have complained to the company about bent iPhones. (via @jonfortt)
Additionally, Apple had reinforced the unibody aluminum case design to give it added strength against torsion, noting that "new iPhones feature steel/titanium inserts to reinforce stress locations and use the strongest glass in the industry."
