Although Apple downplayed complaints its iPhone 6 was more prone to bending than previous models, the company apparently knew that the phone was bendier, according to internal documents reported by Motherboard.

Why it matters: The issue is the subject of a class-action lawsuit and also could affect Apple's credibility in the future as new issues arise.
