If you love your skinny jeans, then the Apple iPhone 6 Plus is probably not the best choice for you, considering its 5.5-inch length. However, if you are planning on overlooking the new Apple product just based on its bulky size, think again, because a Chinese tech store has just the perfect solution for this size trouble.
Apple rolled out the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in India and China on Friday, and while the former would not have any issue fitting into an average pants pocket, as it is just 4.7 inches large, the iPhone 6 Plus, is at the best, going to be a bit snug in most pants pockets, if it does manage to slip in.
Fret not, as China Unicom branch in Shanghai has come up with an excellent solution for the size trouble. The store has hired a tailor, who alters jeans pockets of iPhone 6 Plus customers for free. The tailor, very strategically positioned right outside the Apple store, customises the pockets of each customer, allowing them to carry the latest Apple products in their pockets.
While many are accusing Unicom of hiring the tailor for publicity, Softpedia says they do not see how it can be chalked to positive publicity, especially when the move had raised even more concerns regarding the huge Apple iPhone.
Apple iPhone 6 Plus has so far had to fend off multiple waves of bad press in recent times. "Having to adjust your pants to carry a new smartphone isn't exactly flattering to Apple, the carrier, or even the customer," they said.
Moreover, hiring a tailor to customise pockets is not exactly an original idea. When iPhone6 Plus reached Amsterdam a while back, tech store KPN did the same. They too arranged for a tailor who stood outside one of their retail stores and offered to enlarge pockets for the customers who wanted to carry their new iPhone 6 Plus comfortably in their pants.
