Remember #bendgate? Well, that was yesterday's problem, because the newest issue with the iPhone 6 is that it's ripping chunks of hair out of customers' faces and heads. There's been a number of reports (see the tweets below) that the seam on the smartphone where the glass screen meets the aluminum backing is catching hairs while people talk on the phone, causing the hair to be torn right out. Check out the video explaining exactly how the ouch-inducing issue occurs below.
