An internal document of the company has revealed a lot of information related to the ‘Bendgate’ 2014, whose case became very famous after users of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus reported that their phones would bend very easily, however, Apple maintained a defensive stance accusing users of misuse of the computer, causing it to bend.
This was during the first few months, in fact, many companies took advantage of this event to launch marketing campaigns of their devices. There were even those who accused these users work for companies such as Samsung, whose job it was to discredit the iPhone 6.
And finally today we know the truth, a truth that is very painful for many fanboys of Apple, as internal documents have revealed that Apple knew that the iPhone 6 and 6S will bend very easily, and even with this he did not do anything to prevent it, and what is worse is that you still blame the users affected.
And is that the document mentions that according to the stress tests the iPhone 6 was 3.3 times more prone to bend than the iPhone 5s, while the iPhone 6 Plus was 7.2 times more prone to this problem compared to the iPhone 5s.
Apple itself had a solution, but it was not immediate
It was until may of 2016 when the company applied changes to these phones, they received a reinforcement in the plate, although this fact is not made public for obvious reasons.
This whole problem of the iPhone bent or ‘Bendgate’ came as a result of the famous ‘disease touch’, which was when the touch screen failed, blaming again to the users, mentioning that this problem appeared only if you are pulling several times the computer, a situation that according to these tests, is not real.
All this information has been discovered thanks to a lawsuit in which it accuses Apple of misleading users about the ‘disease touch’ , and although he argues that it is not the fault of the ‘Bendgate’, the reasons are more clear today that in 2016, the year in which Apple acknowledged the existence of the ‘disease touch’.
