First, there was a flood of reports — and videos, and pictures and tweets — from customers that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices were bending after a few days’ use. (Twitter promptly dubbed the phenomenon “Bendgate” or “Bendghazi”).That would be bad enough, but yesterday afternoon Apple released its first update for its new OS, the iOS 8.0.1.
