How To Unbend The iPhone 6 Plus

So let’s say your iPhone 6 Plus does bend under normal usage and Apple for some reason refuses to replace it — what can you do? Well, one option might be to buy the gTool PanelPress, a new device that was designed for the sole purpose of helping you restore your bent iPhone back to its original shape.

According to gTool, you can use the device to successfully unbend your iPhone in just a few easy steps:

  • First, make sure your SIM tray is inserted into the device
  • Next, insert your phone into the PanelPress and adjust its position using the tool’s rubber beds
  • Then you should fasten the device down by tightening the side that features a two-sided clamp
  • Finally, start tightening the other knob on the device to bend your iPhone back into shape

gTool doesn’t list any pricing information on its website, unfortunately, and it seems like the device can only be bought through resellers at this point. The company does say, however, that the device was designed to work with the iPhone 5, the 5s, the 6 and the 6 Plus.

A full video demonstration of the gTool PanelPress follows below. Also, be sure to check out gTool’s full webpage on the PanelPress, which includes a full list of resellers, by clicking the source link.
