    I'll go with wireless charging issues. Something along the lines of the device not being detected or the device not detecting the watch or ear pods.

    As someone with two qi charging stands waiting for use (office and nightstand) that would be annoying!

    Demand-gate. Apple is doomed! People are actually able to buy their products right away!

    Top 5 Apple gates!

    At #5 we have scuff-gate. The iPhone 5's complete redesign looked amazing at the keynote, but customers quickly found that this phone was very scuff and scratch-able. People found scratches at unboxing and after merely hours of use. Many angry macrumors customers returned their phones several times in disgust.


    At # 4 we have Siri-gate. Brand new to the iPhone 4S and taking the world by excitement was the announcement of Siri, your new phone personal assistant. I've never seen so many people excited about a feature that was still in Beta, unpolished, and completely laggy at launch.

    Coming in at #3 we have notchgate. Apple's "one more thing" super re-design launch focuses on iPhone X, which stands for 10, leaving iPhone 9 somewhere out in the mirror-universe. The controversial notch at the top of the phone leaves customers confused about its function and screen-blocking qualities. Although fanboys insist we will all get used to it.


    At #2 we have the infamous bend-gate with iPhone 6! Quite soon after people got their brand new iPhone 6 and 6 plus in their pockets, they got bent! Looks like Foxconn was using some metal from the mirror universe. Sending a shockwave of YouTube bend videos and customer complaints rabid, Apple addressed the issues in the 6s.


    And the top Apple gate is....... Antenna-gate! The iPhone 4 antennagate scandal gets the top spot simply because mr. Jobs himself addressed the issue in an additional keynote address. His response was one for the history books as he literally brought in competitors' phones and demonstrated the same drawback by gripping he phone tightly to prevent signal. This panicked response was met by many as an admission of a flaw that so many people were unhappy about. Not to mention the white iPhone 4 was delayed after it was announced; this was not a good year for Apple.

    I've already seen #GapGate and #DarkGate in regards to the iPhone 8.

    I’m going to go with ModemGate. Same issue as the 7 with Qualcomm vs Intel modems.
