Apple Says Bending of New IPhones Are ‘Extremely Rare’

Apple Inc. defended itself against complaints about the malleability of its new iPhones, saying that any bending of the devices is “extremely rare” and that the smartphones are constructed to the highest of standards.

The Cupertino, California-based company said in a statement today that only nine customers have contacted it about a bent iPhone 6 Plus. The 5.5-inch screen device, which is the biggest smartphone among Apple’s lineup, became available for sale last week, along with another new model, the iPhone 6. The company sold more than 10 million new iPhones in their debut weekend.
