#HairGate: People Are Now Complaining The iPhone Is Pulling Their Hair Out
It seems that whining iPhone 6 users have found a new microscopic flaw to cry about.
Enter #HairGate. Users on the 9to5Mac community forum have been discussing the way their beloved smartphones yank at their hair when they’re talking on the phone.
According to users, a microscopic space between the phone’s screen and its aluminum body catches individual hairs and rips them out.
The problem comes from smartphone fans waiting for hours and dropping cash to get the latest iPhone, then expecting it to be an utterly perfect specimen representing Apple’s technological genius.
It’s a phone. At the end of the day, it will have problems.
Here’s what iPhone 6 users have to say about #HairGate.

@EmilyDreyfuss No, its my head hair. I have long hair so it happens when there's a seam on the front of a phone like the iPhone or HTC One.

The seam on my iPhone 6 where the aluminum meets the glass is definitely catching my hair and pulling it out. #seamgate
