Beardy hipsters aghast at latest iPhone 6 #hairgate rumours

6 Oct 2014

The Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

As if Apple didn’t have enough drama following claims over a bendable iPhone 6 Plus, now mustachioed and bearded iPhone 6 users are claiming the device is plucking the hair from their faces.

#hairgate is the latest crisis to engulf the normally clean-shaven Apple HQ which dismissed the bendable iPhone 6 Plus claims by pointing out that there were only nine complaints received.

But now Apple is beset by new claims that the iPhone 6 is doubling as a kind of crude medieval shaving instrument.

“I’m more concerned and somewhat irritated that my iPhone 6 Plus, keeps yanking out my my hair when I’m making call,” an anonymous poster on 9to5Mac wrote.

“Initially I thought it was the hair sticking to the screen protector. But upon closer inspection, it was the seam between the glass and aluminium– hair gets stuck and when you try to free it out, it hurts. I believe it’s not only me.”
