Brands Changing Trends – Bigger Jeans Pockets for the Bigger Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 6 Plus.


Everyone knows about the new Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) devices; iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) efforts to make a name in the phablet race has urged it to make bigger sized phones. The new iPhone 6 plus is 5.5 inches large; not an ideal size for a typical smartphone but perfect to act as a phablet. This huge size, however is causing difficulty for the customers because the phone does not fit in their jeans.

There have been some complaints since the launch of these new iPhones 6 and 6 plus. Customers say that the iPhone is so huge that it doesn’t fit, and if it does, it bends if kept in the pocket for a long time. A channel on YouTube had performed a stress test on iPhone 6 plus to check if the rumors are true or not and guess what? The phone did bend when the stress test was applied. It even seemed that the phone might break in two pieces.

Well, some fashion brands took the matter in their own hands and decided to change their clothing styles to complement the large sized iPhones. Uniqlo stated to Quartz in a recent interview that their company is having some discussions with the development crew from the technology perspective. They think that clothes can be helpful in providing ease to the customers in many matters. The most important point of their discussion was considering the size of jean pockets.

Listed here are some brands which are going to alter their clothing a little bit to cope with the bigger tech devices.
