We all know of the Bendgate scandal by now. Apple got dragged into a rather unpleasant controversy when users started to complain of the larger variant iPhone 6 Plus bending, when kept in their pockets. If that wasn’t absurd enough, a new (even more absurd) controversy is now doing the rounds among users.

9to5Mac community post has brought to light 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.
Users complain that when the iPhone 6 is held up to the ear, it rips out hair from the head caught in the gap between the glass display and aluminium cover.  The problem has even extended to facial hair, and users gave it the hashtag #Beardgate.

Amidst these controversies, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have released in many countries and are scheduled to come to India on October 17. Meanwhile, the phone is already available in grey markets, and is being sold by vendors on various e-commerce sites as well.
