Video: How to fix a bent iPhone 6 Plus (seriously, DO NOT try this at home)

When Apple first unveiled the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earlier this month, people knew right away that they were two of the most beautiful smartphones the world had ever seen. At the same time, however, there were a few curious design decisions that raised some eyebrows. One in particular is the protruding camera lens on both phones, which one critic even referred to as “appalling.”

YouTube users PeripateticPandas took the opportunity to release a funny (and frightening) video that shows us one way to fix the iPhone 6’s protruding camera, and now the team is back with a unique solution for “Bendgate.” More →

A complete guide to how everyone has made fun of Apple over ‘Bendgate’ this week

Earlier this week, some iPhone 6 Plus were unpleasantly surprised seeing their iPhone 6 Plus getting bent in pockets. Soon after that, more bending tests followed, revealing that the phablet is more susceptible to such accidents than the smaller iPhone 6, and that competing devices can’t be similarly bent. And when something like #Bendgate happens to a company like Apple, you can be almost certain that plenty of people will make fun of it online, including many of Apple’s competitors. More →

The funniest thing you’ll see today: The Blue Man Group’s disastrous iPhone 6 unboxing

There are lots of ways to unbox your new iPhone besides simply opening up the box… although none of them are likely to be very effective. The Blue Man Group, the famous troupe of entertainers who paint themselves in blue from head to toe and amuse audiences everywhere with their zany antics, have produced their own iPhone 6 unboxing video and it’s just as ridiculous as you’d expect.

Video: How to fix iPhone 6’s protruding camera (DO NOT try this at home)

Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus aren’t just bigger than any previous iPhones, they also feature a completely overhauled design that is easily the most polarizing iPhone design Apple has ever created. Some people absolutely love it, others positively hate it, and some people have mixed feelings about certain aspects of the 2014 iPhones’ new look.

Wherever you land on that wide spectrum, it’s easy to see why the peculiar plastic antenna lines and the protruding camera lens on the back of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus might be off-putting for some users, but a new video highlights one way to fix the second of those two design issues. More →

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Conan thinks Apple could do more to help U2 haters

Inexplicably, the biggest tech-related controversy of the month has without a doubt been the release of U2’s new album. When Tim Cook and Bono announced that Songs of Innocence would be injected into everyone’s iTunes account without their permission, the Internet proceeded to lose its collective mind. There were op-eds, angry tweets and enough vitriol to force Apple to provide a simple solution for removing the album that it paid $100 million to give out for free. But what if Apple didn’t go far enough? More →

The user started out with just one word and picked autopredict suggestions about where to go from there and the results were about as ridiculous as you’d expect. More →

Meet the iPhone fan who’s really annoyed about the iPhone 6… but will still buy one anyway

If you’re a fan of Apple’s products, it’s hard not to get caught up in the inevitable hype leading up to a keynote address.

It’s common knowledge that Apple takes its products very seriously. Tim Cook was uncharacteristically giddy on Tuesday as Apple unveiled a new line of devices, but the introduction videos showcasing the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch were as solemn and moody as anything the company has ever produced. No top 40 radio hits, no celebrity guests — just slow motion product shots and emotional piano music. More →

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Funny or Die has a solution for Apple’s iCloud woes

Quite possibly the biggest takeaway from the celebrity photo leak scandal from earlier in the week is that our information in the cloud is never as secure as we’d like it to be. No matter how much time and effort you put into protecting your data, there’s probably someone out there who can hack it. That’s why “Apple” (by way of Funny or Die) has decided to solve the problem once and for all. More →
