Your iPhone 6 could commit suicide if you ignore it

The iPhone 6’s sleek design is undeniably sexy, but the big glass display and those sexy curved edges can cause problems if you leave your phone sitting on a smooth surface.

If you’re not careful, you could find your iPhone in pieces on the floor.

Here at the Cult of Mac offices, we’ve already witnessed several iPhone 6 suicide attempts. Leave the precious thing unattended on a glass desk, miss a couple of calls or text messages, and the next thing you know, the vibrations are sending your new device over the edge.

The iPhone 6 certainly isn’t the first phone to vibrate itself into a precarious position, but something about the super-smooth smartphone seems to make it more apt to mosey than most. It almost glides across the surface of a smooth glass desk, while an iPhone 5s just jiggles a bit.

Don’t believe us? Watch the video above.

In the meantime, be careful where you leave your new iPhone — or turn off the vibration alerts for phone calls and text messages if your house or office is nothing but smooth surfaces. (To do that, go to Settings > Notifications > Phone or Messages > Notification Sound > Vibration > None.)

Or you could always keep it in your pocket — once your iPhone 6 gets bent, it probably won’t glide so easily.
