Apple is still insisting that bent iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models are a tiny problem even though evidence piles up every day showing that the problem is much more widespread than what the company is letting on. Now iPhone users can take matters into their own hands by using and contributing to a new interactive map that is actively tracking which Apple Stores across the world have agreed to replace bent iPhones so far and which have not.

DON’T MISS: Apple said ‘Bendgate’ affected 9 iPhone 6 units – here’s a video of 300 bent iPhones

The map, which can be found over at OneOfTheNine, has just recently launched so you shouldn’t expect it to be a comprehensive list of which Apple retail outlets are accepting returns for bent devices. Users have the option of choosing three options to describe their experiences returning their bent iPhones: “Store replaced the phone for free,” “Store replaced the phone for free after arguing” or “Store refused to replace the phone or charged for replacement.”

As of this writing, there are fewer than 20 entries listed so far. Additionally, it’s tough to tell for certain whether an entire Apple Store has a policy of refusing to replace bent iPhones or whether individual workers in the stores are refusing to replace them.

All the same, this is a useful resource that you should bookmark and look up if you ever find that your shiny new iPhone has an unsightly bend. Check out the whole thing at the source link below.
