New iPhones Run Into Software And Has Bending Complaints Post Posted: Thu Sep 25, 2014 11:38 am 

Apple's iphones are again in trouble, its newest iPhones have ran into some glitches after users complained that a new software update blocked their calls, and a video circulated to suggest that the larger of the two new models is vulnerable to bending.

It would stop providing the software update, which it began distributing yesterday morning to fix several issues in last week's iOS 8 operating system for iPhones and iPads, said Apple.

The decision came out when some people complained on Twitter and in Apple user chatrooms that the update, dubbed iOS 8.0.1, rendered their phones unable to make calls and caused problems with a feature that lets people unlock their phones with their fingerprint.

However, yesterday Apple announced that it was investigating the reports and would issue advice to users "as quickly as we can." Users are still able to the upgrade older phones to last week's version of iOS 8, which Apple said has already been downloaded to nearly half of all iOS devices.

Meanwhile, some tech blogs reported the update only seemed to cause problems for the latest phone models, such as iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It's not uncommon for new software to contain bugs that have to be fixed with subsequent releases.

social media sites were buzzing yesterday with reports that the aluminum shell of the iPhone 6 Plus is vulnerable to bending.

Some Twitter users claimed their phones showed a slight curving at one end after several hours in a pants pocket, the 5.5-inch screen, the iPhone 6 Plus is slightly longer and thinner than other iPhone models.

It's not clear how widespread the complaints are. One YouTube video showed someone bending an iPhone 6 Plus by applying extended pressure with his hands -- not from normal sitting.

Presently, Apple did not comment on the reports of bending.
