LONDON, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- An Israeli psychic known for purportedly bending metal objects with his mind says Apple's bending iPhone 6 woes could be explained by "mental forces."

Uri Geller said during a visit to England there were "two possible reasons for the phenomenon" that has been dubbed "Bendgate" by unhappy iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners who discovered the phones bent after spending time in a user's pants pocket.

"Either the device is extremely thin so that it bends when even a weak force is implied on it -- which is hard to believe for Apple has been conducting many tests and experiments -- or the energy and excitement of the millions of consumers stirred up their mental forces causing the iPhone to bend," Geller told MarketWatch.

Geller said he is willing to help Apple shirk the blame for the bending devices.

"I offer Apple to hire me in order to explain to the world that the phenomenon is not at all the company's fault."

Geller said he knows from personal experience that its possible to bend a phone with one's mind.

"I've bent my old BlackBerrys before," he said.

Apple says so far a total of nine customers have complained to the company about bent iPhones.
