    Does anyone have the same issue I am having with my iPhone 6? Am I really unlucky when it comes to iPhones, because my old replacement iPhone 4's power button broken after 5 months and when I first got my iPhone 6 on launch day it had a dead pixel. The first thing I did was go to the Apple Store to speak to a genius. The genius instantly saw the dead pixel and replaced it for me. The new one I got started to clip my hair. I only noticed this when I got a hair cut because I cut my hair really short. Am I the only one having this issue or do other people have the same issue? Should I go back to the Apple Store and ask for a new one?

    It hasn't pulled any of my hair out yet but when I'm walking and talking on the phone, every subtle movement hurts because of it pulling my hair. Are you going to get it replaced?

    Had a hair pulled earlier today. I was holding the phone's top edge up near my mouth just being lazy as I was leaning on the counter and snagged a hair under my bottom lip. Damn that hurt!

    It actually feels good to tweeze facial hair.

    I thought I was the only one. Rips my facial hair out and right after a haircut it will pull my hair out.

    No hair clipping here (my hair is quite short), but I often find small textile fibers from the interior of my pocket trapped in that corner. Somehow it seems to suck them in.

    Uhh...I'm actually having this issue with my 6+. The hair above my ear get's pulled randomly. Minor annoyance but it kinda hurts. I have a friend with a 6 that has the same issue. Nothing to fret about just wanted to note that I got the problem too.

    I have old white scraggly hair and short beard. Never an issue. I do have the Apple silicon case though. Never heard of this on any smartphone, ever.

    Need to strengthen the hair roots thru vitamin supplements--;) :)

    It gets better through time. There will be no more hair to pull out from the same place after a while.

    I've got a beard and never had the hair pulled by my 6+. Maybe it depends how thick your hair is? Mine is thick.

    Agreed. I regularly pluck the odd beard hair as a (bad?) habit.

    There's a word for people without beards: women. :)

    My first 6 pulled the hair out of my face ALL the time and it hurt like hell :mad:. I exchanged my phone for an unrelated issue, and the new one is much better. The problem is real, it just depends on how well your hair texture matches up to the tiny variations in the space between the screen and housing.

    I thought I was the only one that had noticed this - I used to like rubbing the edge of the 5s on my face but when I do it with my 6+ it rips my facial hair out!

    iPhones are made for girly men without beards.

    Also once the phone is covered with hair it won't pull out any more. :cool:
