I know that it might look like a medieval torture device, but what you see here is the gTool: Panel Press. It’s a specially designed tool created for the sole purpose of straightening out bent iPhones. No I’m not kidding. Shortly after the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus became available, we started hearing about them bending from being sat on while carried in back pants pockets. iPhones have aluminum back casings that are not designed to withstand 100’s of pounds of pressure which can happen when you sit down on the phone. The Panel Press can straighten out the frame by applying force in the opposite direction. If you need to unbend your iPhone, this tool will help, but it’s going to set you back a whopping $299.99! My advice is to NOT carry your phone in your back pocket and if you do, don’t sit down on it. There you go, $299.99 saved, crisis averted, you’re welcome. For more info visit gTool.
