The Curious Case of Apple’s iPhone 5S Bending in Pockets

What does slimmer and lighter mean for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone users? Bent phones; yes, you read it right. The mistake that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) made with the iPhone 5 last year is being repeated by the company, again, according to a French website Nowhereelse.fr. What might appear strange is that such users are also saying that they have not put their phone in their back pocket and sat on it.

This curious case of the iPhone seems to have something to do with the iPhone 5’s new design, which is slimmer and lighter than previous generations. But what strikes us as odd is why would Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) not fix this design issue or the structural integrity issue on the iPhone 5S, and why would the Cupertino company make the same mistake twice? It is also evident that the company has used the same materials on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S.

A bent iPhone 5S is definitely not a good start from the company, since it is made available to the public just a few days ago. Being made out of metal, the phone shouldn’t really bend, but because of the structural issues, boy, they really do bend, and it looks to be a serious issue.

No statement issued from Apple

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has not issued any statement on this, nor said anything when seeing bent iPhone 5 models, which mean we just hope that this issue won’t affect a lot of users. If they do, then it would be a question to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s reputation, as to why Apple would use such material that would easily bend. Isn’t the iPhone strong and durable? That’s the question that pops up when seeing these images.

Do you know anyone with a bent iPhone 5S? Let us know in the comments.
