    We've all heard it before:

    iphone 4: Antenna-gate
    iphone 4S: Battery-gate
    iphone 5: Scuff-gate
    iphone 5S: Gold-gate
    iphone 6/6+: Bend-gate

    So, what loopy backlash do you think the iphone 6S is going to get? I think we're running out of things to complain about. Maybe something wonky with the new touch-sensitive screen?

    My money's on CPU issue. I'll call it NAND gate. ;)

    NAND is a memory type, not a CPU.(edit: NAND Flash is a memory type, not to be confused with Logical NAND)

    IMO this entire idea of thinking up the next Apple 'micro-disaster'(defined as the ludicrous faults that the normal buyer would never even notice or experience) is a huge waste of time.

    Ah darn, I was taught that a NAND gate was just, like, an on-off switch used in CPUs and stuff to process what's going on, all those tasty transitors. Now I feel stupid :oops:

    Well that could entirely be correct as a NAND gate is an older-type of transistor. Some NAND memory uses a type floating-gate transistors that are connected in a way that resemble NAND gates.

    NAND gates were also used in CMOS chips, however I'm not sure if that is still the case.

    Err NAND gate is a type of logic gate which can be either a diode or transistor

    See my second post. I sort-of corrected myself.

    Thank you for the extra clarification though!

    I'm voting for rabbit-trail gate!

    It will not be splash proof and they will call it Water-gate

    Yep, we are about ready to hear all of these and more. My favorite was when a new iPhone 6 owner complained that his new phone had a strange odor when he removed it from the box!

    it did, but the newer generation of nerd probably missed it completely.

    Thanks man, I feel old as anything now. My Dad got this for me as a kid (anybody remember these?) and boy did I love it. Looking through the manual and making an AM radio was great. I still remember the joy I felt when it briefly picked up something other than static - a very rare occasion indeed.

    Apple will say it's water-resistant like the Apple Watch, and then people will go scuba-driving with it where it will get water damage.

    Scubagate sounds silly. Is Watergate taken?

    I think the "S" models haven't had a -gate problem to them yet, just the regular models.

    Battery-gate? Gold-gate? Never heard of those two. The "S" models always fix the -gate issues.

    Agreed - but does every thread have to be about something meaningful? Macrumors would go out of business

    What it should be is iOS-gate.
    It's in desperate need a serious real update and clean up.. not an icon change and new backdrops.

    How about: "my credit card is maxed out, will Apple still let me pre-order with it, I plan on paying it down"
