An Israeli mentalist claims to have an explanation for the bending new iPhones.
Uri Geller blames it on our anticipation for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
"Either the device is extremely thin so that it bends when even a weak force is implied on it -- which is hard to believe for Apple has been conducting many tests and experiments -- or the energy and excitement of the millions of consumers stirred up their mental forces causing the iPhone to bend," Geller told UPI.
Geller invited Apple to hire him to explain to the world "that the phenomenon is not at all the company's fault."
But it's likely his offer will be declined.
In a statement, Apple said it performs "rigorous tests throughout the entire development cycle including 3-point bending, pressure point cycling, sit, torsion, and user studies. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus meet or exceed all of our high quality standards to endure everyday, real life use."
On Thursday, Apple acknowledged that it has received reports of the phone bending, adding that cases are "extremely rare." Out of the millions of phones sold, Apple said only nine customers contacted the company about a bent iPhone 6 Plus.
On his site, Geller is described as "one of the world's most investigated and celebrated mystifiers" and is "famous around the globe for his mind-bending abilities."

Anyone that would pay $800 for a phone is mental.
