    "This cable or accessory is not supported" gate, which has existed forever, but will be much more noticeable now.

    SIMgate. It doesn't sit flush in some video that was posted.

    4S - Battery-gate
    5 - Scuff Gate
    5S - (i forget,) Gold Gate? (no gold phones available)
    6 - (i forget) Bend Gate?
    6S - (i forget)

    Oh wow I used to be all over this stuff. Help a guy out.

    Scratch Gate: Jet edition I don't think Apple should release a product that scratches so easily or requires a tiny statement disclaimer like this on their website:

    "The high-gloss finish of the jet black iPhone 7 is achieved through a precision nine-step anodisation and polishing process. Its surface is equally as hard as other anodised Apple products; however, its high shine may show fine micro-abrasions with use. If you are concerned about this, we suggest you use one of the many cases available to protect your iPhone."

    Who buys a beautiful phone to then put it in a case, never to see the beautiful design or color?

    Glass Gate more like straight fraud.

    But they will claim supplier error.

    Or there will be threads of my iPhone 7 blew up from people trying to be famous

    Let's see what happens, eh? One video with a claim does not a full story make....

    Sure, let's all get out a knife and try scratching the lens to test this with a great sample of subjects.

    5. Idonthaveareallifegate.

    Etc, etc, etc...

    That's not what I said though?

    We've seen one video - whereby someone tells us a certain hardness tip is used to scratch a lens cover that we've been told is sapphire.

    What are the options?

    1) The lens is faulty.

    2) The lens coating is what scratched.

    3) The lens isn't sapphire.

    4) A different hardness tip was used (purposefully or accidentally).

    More tests will be done - amateur in nature, slightly more scientific, and really scientific in a lab environment analysing the molecular make-up of the lens. We'll find out the truth in the coming days.

    Until then - one person who makes a claim on a video that we can't see the full scientific evidence of doesn't really prove anything. It claims something - nothing more, nothing less - but could be any of the options outlined above....

    Remember people create videos not entirely benevolently. Yes this guy probably did find something, and did do this for some public benefit... But he's also done it to get views....

    Get a clear case. Phones aren't indestructible. I don't think people will make a big deal of it. Similar to how the stainless steel Apple watch has micro-abrasions.

    Lawsuit has already been filed, it's UpgradeGate.

    What Gate?

    iPhone 7 Plus delivery-gate.

    That's what "-gate".

    I'm a bit disappointed with major media as we have been over 24 hours since iPhone launch and we do not have a serious "-gate" issue.
    Okay we have "jack-gate" and we have "glove-gate". But the removal of the jack has been out for so long, media is having trouble making this into a newsworthy crisis. And "glove-gate" is a bit stupid since the entire screen won't work without skin contact or capacity gloves. Also that story doesn't run in late-September and it doesn't run globally since probably 80% of the world doesn't live in cold enough places to even ever need cold weather gloves (heck, cold weather might only effect 10% of the global population).

    So where is the "-gate"? I thought scuff gate was going to do be a thing. But I guess so few people where able to buy Jet Black that hasn't happened yet. Where is the thing that is going to doom Apple and this version of the iPhone?
