People line up to buy iPhones just to resell them in China

Apple says that it has received nine complaints about the iPhone 6 Plus bending after it had been in people's pockets for too long.

They say the phones undergo "rigorous tests" and that "with normal use a bend in iPhone is extremely rare." But the problem is not stopping people from buying the devices.

Chinese smugglers make big bucks on iPhone 6

In the United States, you may have noticed a lot of people in line of the iPhone are Chinese. The reason? The iPhone 6 is not yet sold in China, which is the world's largest smartphone market. That means big money for Chinese buyers who come to the U.S. and play the line well.

CNN's Kyung Lah has the story.
