The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc. The devices are part of the iPhone series and were unveiled on September 9, 2014, and released on September 19, 2014. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus jointly serve as successors to the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, and were predeceessors to the iPhone 6s/6s Plus.
The iPhone 6 includes a number of changes over its predecessor, including a larger 4.7 inch (120mm) display, a faster processor, upgraded cameras, improved LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity, and support for a near field communications-based mobile payments offering. This was also the second iPhone to have Touch ID. It supported iOS 8 through 12.4.8.
The section right below the volume down button was very fragile, and could bend easily. Users who put their iPhone 6/6 Plus in their back pocket reported having a bent device when taken out. The issue was dubbed as "Bendgate". This was much more prominent on the 6 Plus because of the greater size of the phone. Bendgate went viral across the internet, and Apple was scolded for their poor build quality. This however was fixed with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
Although it looks like that you could very easily bend the device, you'd actually have to apply a lot of pressure to the frame in order to bend it.
Pre-orders of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus exceeded four million within its first 24 hours of availability—an Apple record. More than ten million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices were sold in the first three days, another Apple record.
On September 9, 2015, the 128 GB version of the iPhone 6 was discontinued along with the gold version. The 16 GB and 64 GB versions of the iPhone 6 in silver and space gray were available for sale at a reduced price due to the release of the iPhone 6S.
