Touch your phone anywhere on the homescreen and drag it down.  That will open the Spotlight search function.

Apple plays defense on iPhone 6 bending, software concerns | Reuters

(...) Apple shares closed down nearly 4 percent at $97.87 on Thursday, wiping out nearly $23 billion in market value.

The new phones face criticism over their bendability, dubbed "bendgate". Social media and online forums have been abuzz with comments about how the new phones can bend when placed in back pockets or while wearing skinny jeans.

Apple said its iPhones feature stainless steel and titanium inserts to reinforce high-stress locations and use the strongest glass in the smartphone industry.

The only way an iPhone may have bent is if someone put it in their back pocket and sat on the phone for a very long time, said Laban Roomes, chief executive of Goldgenie, which customizes and gold plates iPhones.

Apple was also forced to withdraw a faulty update to its latest operating system after some users of its new phones complained of call service disruptions.

"We apologize for the great inconvenience experienced by users," Muller said.

Apple said on its website it was working on an iOS update to fix the issue, and will release it in the next few days. (bit.ly/1qxHWGR)

"I do believe this speaks to execution issues at Apple," said JMP Securities analyst Alex Gauna. "At the end of the day I believe this too shall pass, but we are noting with concern that the miscues pile up."

Apple said on Monday it had shipped 10 million units of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Users of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus also complained about the inability to use the fingerprint-reading Touch ID after updating to iOS 8.0.1.

Some users had complained of "sluggish Wi-Fi and dwindling battery life" after moving to iOS 8, Time magazine reported earlier this week. (ti.me/1pqlCPt)

On Thursday, Apple issued a step-by-step guide for users to reinstall iOS 8, launched last week, through the latest version of iTunes. The health app will not work for now and will be fixed in the next software update, the company said.

Customers might, however, hope for replacements for their bent iPhones, depending on whether their devices passed an inspection, tech news website The Next Web reported, quoting an Apple support executive. (tnw.co/1rlv7mW)

"It's not game over for Apple, but nor should we give them a pass on this," Gauna said.

Cases of bent iPhones 5 and 5s had been reported in 2013 by Cult of Mac, a website that exclusively covers Apple. (bit.ly/1sjZbOT)

Rival smartphone makers took digs at Apple's problems.

A Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (005930.KS) advertisement showcased a bending phone against its own product, while BlackBerry Ltd (BB.TO) CEO John Chen said: "I would challenge you guys to bend our Passport."

Nestle SA's (NESN.VX) Kit-Kat chocolate wafer brand tweeted "We don't bend, we break".

That's pretty much what I do, and (for me) it's dramatically cheaper to do so.  {#Curtain}

Just cause it's called a smartphone doesn't mean that has any reflection on the people using them

We are being careful with ours, and awaiting the arrival of cases.

Given their history, it seems unlikely that Apple will "give" anything to anyone, but I'm sure they'll sell rigid cases.  As one tech analyst states in the article, "smartphones are not designed to be put in trouser pockets".  I know those 'holster' cases are pretty goofy looking, but those phones are very expensive.

You could just strap something rigid to the back of the phone.... I think I'll market a product especially for this purpose, it will be called the iBeam.

 
We have ordered clear cases with a rigid plastic back, and a rubber, grippy edge and corners. Hopefully, they will be enough to prevent bending.

But then, I wear old man, relaxed fit, jeans these days, so the phone has lots of room to move around in my pocket.  {#Whistle}

I think if I owned an iPhone, well they feel so slippery in my hand like a wet bar of soap, I'd want to fasten it into an old Western Electric receiver that I can get a grip on.
