Hairgate

It looks like Apple’s new iPhone is getting tangled up in another case of bad publicity.

The iPhone 6 launched on a wave of excitement and anticipation over Apple’s first new major product since the death of co-founder Steve Jobs. But soon the hype turned a little rotten when people started reporting that the new phone bends. And now users are complaining about another problem.

On Twitter people are saying that the phone is catching hair from people’s heads and beards and pulling them out. According to their tweets hairs are getting stuck in the thin seam between the glass and the aluminum on the new handsets.

So far Apple has only responded to the allegations about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus bending out of shape. It says with normal use a bend in the iPhone should be extremely rare. The company also says the new handsets feature steel and titanium inserts meant to reinforce stress on the device and the strongest glass in the industry.

Maybe Apple’s next bit announcement should be a job opening in its product testing department.
