4 people get facial hair caught in iPhones, prepare for beardgate
It seems as though bendgate is finally quieting down, but could there be another scandal on the way for Apple? No. Definitely not. Especially not with this latest bit of complaints. It seems that there have been some users who have been finding that their beards are getting caught in their new iPhones.

The news comes from a 9to5Mac community member who says that the seam between the glass of the display and the aluminum case is a prime place for facial hair to get caught. He said that his iPhone 6 Plus "keeps yanking out my hair when I’m making call", and surprisingly, he's not the only one having the issue. Apparently, a Twitter search revealed three other people who had the same problem. We had trouble finding four people from the past three years with that same issue. 

Does this mean we're on the verge of a new beardgate scandal? No. Nope, definitely not. But, it is amusing. I actually had that same problem with a Nexus (either the Galaxy Nexus or Nexus 4, not really sure), and it wouldn't be a surprise if there are a bunch of phone where this will happen. Let's hope we don't see a rash of bloggers pulling their beards out with an iPhone.

My 6 Plus doesn't do this so I doubt the legitimacy of this lol.

Do you look like the cast of Duck Dynasty? Somehow, I doubt it if your + doesn't snag your beard. Although, if real (which I too doubt the truth of), this may be a further driver for case sales.

Lol no. Usually just scruff, but I myself have had no problems nor the people who've used my 6+ today.

Bet on that the Apple propaganda invented this, to make BendGate go down. And to ridicule the attacks against Apple. Pathetic But the BendGate is here to stay , at least until next iPhone6+S

Seriously though, if I got my beard hair caught in a phone, I wouldn't be publicizing it... I agree with you here.

Yeah... and your point is? I still think that people will complain about anything at the moment in regards to Apple. Do I like their products? Not at all. Do I like to talk smack about them? Hells yeah. But this just sounds stupid whether it's true or not.
