People are now claiming that the iPhone 6 rips their hair out
Be careful out there.

FIRST, THERE WAS #BendGate. Reports flooded the media that claimed the iPhone 6 Plus was susceptible to bending when kept in your pocket.

Now, there’s #HairGate. A 9to5Mac community post reveals that iPhone 6 customers are complaining on social media that their new phones keep ripping out chunks of their hair when they hold the phone up to their ear to take a call.

Twitter users say their hair is getting caught in the seam between the glass screen and aluminum back of the iPhone 6.

This news follows #GapGate, which focused on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Customers complained to Samsung that their new Android phones had a gap between the screen and the case. It’s unknown whether Samsung customers are also experiencing hair loss when taking calls on their phones, as some iPhone 6 users are now reporting.
