First came bendgate, now comes hairgate – a new complaint from Apple iPhone 6 users that hairs are becoming trapped between the screen and the handset when making calls, causing painful pulling.

• Get bent! iPhone 6 users report bending issue
• iPhone 6 Plus review: life with my new (big) bestie
• iPhone users fall for fake microwave trick

Tech website Mashable was quick to debunk the claims, vigorously testing the new phone over hirsute faces and glossy heads without a single strand lost in the video below.

 

 

But true or not, Twitter is awash with the #hairgate battlecry.

 

 

Memes flooded in from around the globe mocking #hairgate.

   

 

Shaving giant Gillette saw a chance to cash in on the Apple epidemic.

 

   

But other users insisted it was a thing. Really.    

 

 

Buzzfeed insisted whole CHUNKS were being ripped out by the mega-hyped smartphone.

 

 

Apple itself has wisely made no comment.
