Japan-based Patchworks wants to stop your iPhone 6 Plus from bending with its new ITG Edge protector that adds another layer of protection to your handset from “#Bendgate”.
Following several reports of iPhone 6 Plus’ bending in pockets, the ITG Edge protector is launching in the US to add a 0.4mm-thick, 11g sheet of tempered glass with a bevel of liquid silicon to match the edges, on top of your handset.
In a video posted by Patchworks, it claims the ITG Edge protector will add another 45 percent of durability to your iPhone 6. With the tempered glass on the handset, it can withstand 101.3 pounds before snapping, where with out it, it would snap with 70 pounds. The company didn’t provide specifics for the iPhone 6 Plus.
Patchworks announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that the ITG Edge protector is set to go on sale in the US for $39 for the iPhone 6 model or $45 for an iPhone 6 Plus model.
