No question it bends. Apple have demonstrated that it bends. But then you succumb to stupidity, as usual. The issue, obviously, is not whether it bends (period), the issue is whether it bends under unreasonably low forces. Not proven, either by actual testing or by extensive user complaints. I don't want proof - I want credible evidence, and I haven't yet seen any.
If you really want to be picky about this, Apple is a company. Company in the business context, is a singular, inanimate noun (not a collective noun), referring to a singular, inanimate entity. It is Apple. They are not Apple.
It's probably true that if there were an epidemic of bent phones from normal use then Apple would have to deal with it, and keeping a phone in a pocket is likely within the range of accepted normal use. But, I am quite sure that Apple tested these thoroughly - it's an obvious concern for a large, thin phone - so it would be surprising if this actually transpired.
That may very well be true IF they have the means, but if not, then no. The point is that there is currently no law, at least in the US, that requires them to have the means. Just a desire by certain agencies that they should.
