No More 'Bendgate' with the Next iPhone

Apple's iPhone 6 encountered something it couldn't always conquer: men's backsides.

When the phone came out last fall, some customers reported that the phone slightly bent after they sat on it because it was in their back pocket. Dubbed "Bendgate," the problem made its fear-mongering rounds in the press at the time.

But now, a new video from Unbox Therapy, shows that Apple's next iPhone (if we can believe this is it), will be ever-so-slightly thicker, which will avoid any kind of bending. The phone's back panel in the video is 138.26mm x 67.16mm, compared to the iPhone 6 which is 138.09mm x 66.91mm. Though very small, it's that difference that could prevent the infamous bending, according to Unbox Therapy's Lewis Hilsenteger.

The back panel in Hilsenteger's video seems to match the photos in an earlier post from 9to5Mac, adding to the probability that the next iPhone will indeed look nearly identical to the iPhone 6. Apple will reported hold an event on September 9 this year, where this upcoming phone would be revealed if all rumors align.
