Do you still remember bendgate ? The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were easily bent, and the construction error caused the global problems with screens. The producer decided that they are the fault of the users, so he repaired them for a fee. It turns out that Apple knew about the susceptibility of its flaggers to bending.
Bendgate – smartphone affair of 2014
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are Apple's flagship from 2014 and at the same time the first "big" smartphones of this manufacturer. Soon after the sale of these models began, complaints about their above-average susceptibility to bending appeared in the network. All you had to do was hold the phone in the pocket of tight jeans for a long time to see something like this:Or something like: Some were joking about it, but not everyone was laughing: The bending problem was above all, a larger iPhone 6 Plus. Apple claimed that these were very rare cases, not admitting the structural error. Meanwhile, there was another problem with the iPhone, this time on a screen that did not recognize the touch and displayed strange stripes on the edges . The reason for all this was the damage to the layout responsible for handling the touch that could have occurred due to the susceptibility of the phone to bend. Apple worked its own way and announced a program to exchange damaged copies. The problem is that you had to pay for it and it's up to 699 zlotys. All because the manufacturer claims that the fault was the fault of users and the result of falls or accidental stresses. In retrospect, Apple's position is extremely interesting, as it turned out that the company knew about the imperfections of its phones.
Apple knew that bendgate was not a myth
The documents that were published in connection with the trial against Apple show that the iPhone 6 was to be 3.3 times more vulnerable to bending from the iPhone 5s, while the iPhone 6 Plus by as much as 7.2 times . What's more, the manufacturer knew about it , and yet it did not take any action to solve this problem until May 2016, when it additionally secured new copies of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This is called a quick reaction, right? The process against Apple is still ongoing, so it is worth monitoring the situation on a regular basis, especially when the iPhone 6 Plus has been repaired in the aforementioned exchange program.
Apple has a lot behind the ears
As you can see, Apple has a lot of sins on his conscience. It's not just about bendgate , but also a recent scandal of slowing iPhones. Unfortunately, no one is holy, although some people find it hard to believe. Source: The Verge
