Who can forget all the fuss about #Bendgate? After all, social media is the megaphone for every little issue, and expensive iPhones bending easily catches attention.
But Apple’s “troubles” with the iPhone 6 aren’t over. A couple of months after #BendGate comes another “gate”, and this time it’s called #CrescentGate.
While #BendGate was all about the phone bending, #CrescentGate is all about the front camera becoming misaligned, leading to a crescent shape showing. Once the front camera shifts, it doesn’t go back into place.
Some might laugh at this new “gate” issue, it seems that it is very much real. Even the guys at The Mac Observer have experienced this in one of their iPhones.
As usual, people have gone to social media to share their experiences (with the usual noisemakers).
Genius Bar seemed genuinely surprised by my shifted camera, so maybe #crescentgate is as wide spread as some people think.

#CrescentGate is real and I’ve been aware of it on my phone for almost a month. Good thing it’s getting attention.

Anyone experience this on the iPhone 6 and/or iPhone 6 Plus?
