    The latest to hit after AntennaGate (iPhone 4) and ScuffGate (iPhone 5).

    Why it matters, coz it's Apple!

    Here are some pics from the web -

    According to this site -
    Attention à ne pas ranger l'iPhone 6 dans votre p, sur MacBidouille.com

    This is what Google translate throws up -

    A friend told me about a problem with his iPhone 6 ... he is not registered to Macbidouille but will probably soon.
    He had his phone in his pocket "before" John ... sitting normally ...
    The out of his pocket he found as such ...

    He contacted Apple to the problem, she was told: € 297 repair !!!!

    So iPhone 6 fragile ...

    This confirms the feeling of weakness that you feel when you hold it in hand.

    Note also finally Apple has not had the best idea of the optics of the iPhone just to make it end 1/2 mm slightly beyond. It is wobbly effect when the flat position, which has an unpleasant side.

    [UPDATE] By making careful tests are easily realizes that the iPhone 6 is not very rigid. It even has some flexibility which could easily lead to the fold like the picture at its weakest point, the cutting area pimples.
