Went to Apple today, initially told me bent phone are not covered under warranty since it takes at least 90psi to bend the 6 , I insisted they were wrong and after checking multiple times they found they are in fact covered. Thankfully!
Is your bent or were you just investigating?

Whew, just took my 6+ out of it's case (apple leather) to conduct a bendgate visual inspection and luckily I have no bend.

Thank goodness I don't have to add this to my growing list of first-world problems.

But in all seriousness, I feel badly for those who have experienced bends in their phones.

Some may have a legitimate complaint, but I refuse to feel sorry for those who insist on putting their phone in a back pocket and sitting down.

Agreed, I should have included a qualifier as such. If you using your phone or putting it in a situation where a straight piece of metal/glass should not be and then expecting it to withstand that pressure then I got nothing for ya.

Kind of like driving a convertible through a carwash with the top down and then expecting the car manufacturer to replace your interior because it got wet.

A lot of these cases are such a tight fit, I wouldn't be surprised if people are bending them trying to take them out of them, to see if they are bent.
