Although many — including Apple — would argue that Bendgate is overblown, and the iPhone 6 is no more prone to bending when treated right than any other smartphone, there’s a small but vocal minority that disagrees. If you’re one of them, there’s now a resource to track Apple Stores that will be sympathetic to your plight.


We’ve previously reported about One Of The Nine, a website spotlighting the malleability of Apple’s super-slim smartphones by posting hundreds of pictures of bent iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units. The name comes from Apple’s assertion that it has only heard of nine iPhone 6 units being bent, despite the numerous reports of bent iPhones online.

These days, though, One of the Nine is doing more than just posting pictures of bent iPhones. They’re now tracking every Apple Store that has replaced or refused to replace a bent iPhone 6. They’ll even tell you which stores you need to argue at to get them to replace it.

So far, the data looks like it’s a bit hit or miss on whether or not you’ll get your bent iPhone 6 replaced by Apple. Most stores in America tracked by One In Nine don’t seem to give up bent iPhones easily, but still, if you shop your wobbly iPhone 6 around at enough Genius Stores, it looks like you’ll eventually get your way.
