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.
Here's a high-tech question: Is your butt bending the new extra big iPhone? Or maybe putting it in your front pocket is giving the phone the bends?
CNN's Jeanne Moos is bending more than our ear with this report on the latest brouhaha over the iPhone.
PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel is worth billions of dollars thanks to investments in companies like Facebook. As a graduate of Stanford law, you'd think he'd encourage others to follow in his footsteps and go to college.
No, he actually pays people not to go to college. His fellowship pays 20 young adults, $100,000 each to pursue their interests instead of going to school.
In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Thiel explains why college isn't for everyone.
The iWatch or Apple Pay isn't a true breakthrough, Peter Thiel argues. Something like an Apple Television might be.
"You need to come up with something that is vastly better than the next best thing," he told CNN's Erin Burnett.
Thiel co-founded PayPal and was an early investor in Facebook (FB, Tech30), among other Silicon Valley startups. Today he's full of criticism for everything from Alibaba to Harvard University.
The 46-year-old thinks the U.S. is looking at years of stagnation if it doesn't start innovating more. That's his main message in his new book, "Zero to One: Notes on Startups or How to Build the Future."
It's more than words for the wealthy investor. He's gone as far as founding the Thiel fellowship program, where he offers to pay bright college students to drop out of school and start companies.
"A diploma is a dunce hat in disguise," he said. That's especially the case if you don't graduate from a top school, he said.

The painful irony of the new Apple Watch is you need a device many people already use to tell time - their iPhones - to use the smartwatch.
CNN's Jeanne Moos is OutFront on the many others who are puzzled by Apple's new tech toy.
