Apple has been getting a lot of attention this week thanks to its iPhone 6 Plus bendgate, where its latest foray into the phablet category is marred by bending issues. While its competitors are throwing pot shots over the bending issue, Apple has officially broke its silence and claims that the issue was blown out of proportion.
According to them, they have only received 9 official complaints so far, which is extremely rare considering they have sold over 10 million units last weekend.
Lewis from Unbox Therapy has made another follow up video and this time he compared the smaller iPhone 6, a HTC One M8, Moto X, Lumia 1020 and finally the previous model, the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 6 (6.9mm) is actually thinner than the iPhone 6 Plus (7.1mm) but it appears to be less prone to bending. There’s a noticeable dent but it is reported to be a minor one, which is a better result than the deformed iPhone 6 Plus.
Watch the video after the break.

UPDATE: Apple has just released iOS 8.0.2 to fix the problem affecting iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users. To update, go to Settings > General > Software Updates.
Shortly after the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has rolled out a new iOS 8.0.1 software update that was supposed to iron out some minor kinks. Unfortunately the little update was reported to be creating more problems, affecting its cellular service and TouchID Fingerprint scanner. It seems that it only affects iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that were updated to iOS 8.0.1.
Apple has responded that a fix is on its way in yet another update (iOS 8.0.2) but it would take a couple of days to release it. So for those who are affected, you can restore your iPhone 6 to proper working order by downgrading to iOS 8.0. Head after the break for the official instructions.
If you are planning to get either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus from a scalper, you might want to reconsider because the two devices has received SIRIM approval, which could be an indication that the device will be launched in Malaysia soon.
How soon, you ask? We don’t know, but what’s for almost certain is that it will be this year. Also, you can expect the device to be widely available via operators, the Apple Online Store and maybe even official retailers. But is the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus worth the wait? That’s a bendy debate.
UPDATE: Watch out does the iPhone 6, HTC One M8, Moto X, Lumia 1020 and iPhone 5S fare in the same bend test.
To verify if the iPhone 6 Plus bending claims are true, Lewis from Unbox Therapy has tried to bend the iPhone 6 Plus with his bare hands. Obviously the force is excessive but this could be a possibility with tight pockets. Being aluminium, it deforms like soft metal and when he tried to bend it back, it starts to crack around the sides and the screen as well.
So how does it compare with other larger smart phones? After the iPhone 6 Plus, he made another bend test with the Galaxy Note 3 and you can watch both videos after the break.
Where enthusiasts hold out on the new iPhone, scalpers fill the void looking to meet the demand for customers who don’t mind paying an arm and a leg for Apple’s latest wonder phone. Film producer Casey Neistat has captured the early moments before the first wave of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus went on sale in New York City and it highlights just how bad the situation is. Instead of having long lines of enthusiastic Apple fans, the crowd turns out to be something else.
In the video, it showed a group of people presumably mainland Chinese that have been queueing up for at least 2 days. If you think the grandma that queued up for an iPad 2 was bad, the first in line at an Apple Store in New York was an elderly Chinese woman who can’t speak English. When interviewed, they refused to say if they are reselling and insists that they are buying for themselves or for their loved ones.
The guys at iFixit have just given the latest iPhone 6 Plus a proper tear down treatment. This is the biggest iPhone yet and it appears to be fairly easy to disassemble provided that you have the right tools including a pentalobe screwdriver.
With the screws removed, the iPhone 6 Plus is taken apart with the display first which gives you access to its inner components. From the disassembly, the battery on the iPhone 6 Plus is confirmed to be a large 2,915mAh capacity unit while the new 64-bit Apple A8 chip is mated with just 1GB of RAM.
Meanwhile, the 1080p Full HD 5.5″ display is still fused with the front glass. So if you accidentally break the screen, you would need to change the whole module which can be costly. Overall, iFixit gives the iPhone 6 Plus a repairability score of 7 out of 10, which is higher than previous iPhones.
Watch the tear down video as well as the step by step disassembly guide after the break.
It is available for iPhone (iPhone 4S and above), iPod Touch (5th Gen) and iPad (iPad 2 and above). To start downloading, head over to Settings > General > Software Updates. It takes about 30-40 minutes on 5Mbps Unifi plan to download.
UPDATE: Take note that iOS 8 would require up to 5.7GB of free space to update from the phone. Mashable has posted a solution that you can install with less free space by updating using iTunes on your computer. Just make sure you click on “Check for updates” and DON’T click on “Restore iPhone”.

There are a couple of ways to enhance your smart phone’s camera capability. You can get one of those Sony add-on lens camera or simply get creative with what you’ve got. Now here comes product that lets you take fancy photos all the time in a simple yet elegant solution. And it even claims to be so awesome that it will be hard for anyone to take trashy pictures.
Introducing the Relonch camera case that’s packed with a APS-C sensor with f/2.0 aperture. Unlike typical add-on Lens Camera, there’s no bluetooth or WiFi connectivity to mess around and it connects instantly by slotting an iPhone 5/5S onto lightning connector inside. According to the company, they have plans to release a newer version to support the bigger iPhone 6. To make things simple, there’s only a single shutter button right at the top and all you’ll need is their official app.
