China’s Answer to the Iphone 6 Pocket Bulge

By  |  0 Comments

Now that iPhone 6s are rolling out in China, customers are dealing with the same pocket issues western users have been having for the last month. The bulge from tight, stylish pants are becoming more prevalent. While it does deserve the hashtag “#firstworldproblems,” it doesn’t mean the concern shouldn’t be addressed.

A few weeks ago in Amsterdam, the local mobile service provider KPN, took a creative step in solving this problem. A bicycle powered mobile service offered potential iPhone 6/6+ customers the option to resize their pockets as they waited to purchase their devices. Customers temporarily traded pants for white gowns as their pockets were tailored to accommodate Apple’s new, larger phones.

China took the next step in fighting the iPhone pocket bulge. A telecom company, China Unicom, offered tailoring services to new iPhone customers. Coupled with a decorative kiosk and tailor, People’s Daily China shared some images of the setup at Shanghai’s Unicom store.
