On Thursday, October 2, it was reported that Chinese reservations for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus had reached 2 million in just six hours of availability. Now, the number is even more impressive.
Following the news that Apple has gained regulatory approval on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in China, the Cupertino-based company announced on Tuesday that the two smartphones will launch in the world’s most populous country on Friday, October 17. Apple will begin accepting iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders in China on Friday, October 10.
If you have even an ounce of common sense, you probably don’t need to be told this: please don’t bend the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at Apple Stores. Over the weekend, that’s exactly what a pair of British teenagers named Kylie and Danny did at an Apple Store in the United Kingdom. Even worse, they decided to make a video of the bending.
Almost simultaneously with a new video surfacing in which Unbox Therapy performed a bending test of the iPhone 6 Plus uncut on video in downtown Toronto, Canada to prove that it was not faked, Consumer Reports is out with its own video that finds the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to be less bendable than has been portrayed by the media.
The trending topic this week surrounding the iPhone 6 has certainly revolved around reports that it is prone to bending, with the situation becoming informally known as Bendgate on Twitter and even in mainstream media. The controversy was kickstarted by an iPhone 6 Plus bending video by Unbox Therapy that was later called out for inaccuracies.
