Can Apple iPhone Users Take Another #Gate?

If you’re an iPhone 6 user, be it bent or unbent, beware of Hairgate. Major league publications including Time and The Independent report that customers complain of the “smart” phones “ripping out their hair.”

The new iPhone’s larger and sleeker design apparently did not account for a tiny space in between its glass and aluminum surfaces, which tends to yank out hair around the ear. Those who use the phone have taken to Twitter to voice their complaints, some making light of the situation:

While some users don’t report any hair-snatching from their phones, others insist on it.

To make matters worse, there are those who claim to be doubly afflicted by the related–brace yourself–Beardgate.

As if assaulting oneself by removing hair from one’s own scalp weren’t enough, men with facial hair across the country (and perhaps a few women, silently) have been complaining about hair also being torn from their faces. Conceivably, an occurrence of Beardgate could even directly result in yet another painful occurence of Hairgate.

So unless you’re bald or willing to cover the perimeter of your phone with duct tape, you may be doomed to a life of extreme caution when using your iPhone 6 anytime you make a call. With so much being spent on the iPhone 6, which sold a record 10 million the weekend it was released, you might be wondering, was it worth the hype?
