Here’s a riddle: What is ultra slim but not always in shape? The answer is Apple’s iPhone 6, which tech bloggers say is so thin it’s bending in some users’ pockets.

MacRumors is receiving reports from iPhone 6 users who say the anodized aluminum body is morphing out of shape, particularly when the device has been a tight pocket for several hours. Some users also complain the screen bends out of shape.

So far Apple isn’t commenting on the bending iPhones.

On Monday, the tech giant reported it had sold more than 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, smashing previous records.

One solution for making sure your iPhone 6 stays in shape? Bigger pockets. According to The Huffington Post, that may just mean a comeback for cargo pants.

A Mashable story about the bending iPhones had more than 6,000 shares on Facebook as of Tuesday evening. On Twitter, the news got a few chuckles and its own hashtag, as @photomathon tweeted: "Couldn' help laughing SO outlaud !!! #BendingiPhone"

The video below shows a man bending an iPhone 6 Plus with his hands.

The moral of the story seems to be: If you like to wear tight pants, you may want to consider buying a protection plan for your iPhone.
