iPhone 6 users are complaining that the tiny gap between the aluminum casing and the glass screen is snagging loose hair.
Even razor company Gillette took advantage with a humorous little gaffe of its own.
It would seem like Apple’s iPhone 6 really isn’t getting a break – but not everyone agrees that the so-called ‘Hairgate’ is as bad as it seems.
Forbes’ Gordon Kelley reports that the whole thing is nonsense; citing Hairgate as an exaggeration perpetrated by ‘fanatics’ that pop up during a major Apple, Android and even Blackberry launch.
There is some grain of truth to that statement, as CP’ own Mel Brodey reported a while back that the problem of bending iPhone 6’s was a weakness shared by other phones in its category.
Still, Bendgate was an issue that was truly frightening for current and prospective iPhone 6 users.
Hairgate, on the other hand, is a significantly less threatening problem – one that is completely negated if you shave your beard in the first place.
Got a hair snagged on your iPhone 6? Think this whole Hairgate thing is blown way out of proportion?
