    All this hype is bound to lead to a controversy, drummed up by the apple hardcores and haters.

    Help me remember:

    3G?
    3GS?
    iphone 4: antenna-gate
    4S: Siri-gate
    5: Scuff-gate
    5S: Gold-Gate
    6: Bend-Gate
    6S?
    7?

    Help me fill in the rest!

    And this year......
    Face-Gate, or Wireless-Gate!

    There was Level-gate although I don’t recall which phone it was. 4 or 4s I think. The accelerometer was off by a few degrees and people here lost it, saying it couldn’t be fixed by software (it was)... every single year there’s someone shouting how Apple is in a decline and they’re going to fail “soon.” It should just be a sticky thread at this point.

    I hate the expression gate in situations like this, it's so inappropriate.

    Even Watergate wasn't a gate. :rolleyes:

    Cry like a baby gate because you can't configure to order a pink 1TB model, with a wireless charging dock & v2.0 iPods to arrive before June 2018.

    Weren't people worried about the hairline cracks in the plastic on the 3GS that had happened on the 3G as well (around the camera, etc)? I don't know if that reached full-blown "gate" status, though. The3GS was my first iPhone.
