back to article Apple's iPhone 6 can REVERSE BALDNESS (and cause it, too)

We've all suspected Apple's Jesus Phone can perform miracles, but few of us suspected it could perform the remarkable task of causing hairs to grow from bald men's heads. But now it has emerged that a number of bald men have claimed the new iPhone 6 Plus has ripped hairs from their fur-free noggins. Seeing as they don't appear …

    I'm glad that referred to his beard.

      Alternatively, if the aforementioned scruff had been of the "nasal capillary" variety...

      Seems to be a common belief

      Nothing wrong with it if you feel you need it.

      I, OTOH, own an old, second-hand Samsung S5230.

    would have been Pubes! I think this 'hairs on head getting trapped' business is yet another cover up. Its all gone to cock since Mr Jobs died.

    Marketing Opportunity !!

    If you wear 'fashion' glasses with those big chunky arms, you can tilt the phone slightly so the edge presses against the spectacles and keeps it away from your hair. (Not guarenteed if you have a bristly beard.)

    Any such spectacles for use with an iPhone would have to be stylish and very expensive. This may be why Karl Lagerfeld has become involved with Apple (at the recent Paris launch).

    Should have got a Samsung Note 4

    No way anything is getting stuck in that huge gap.

    truly a serious problem!

    The problem is worse than reported!

    Yesterday I was standing in an elevator and the person next to me was talkking on their iPhone 6/Plus.

    When they walked out of the elevator they took some of my hair with them!

      I've experienced a different side effect. I was stuck in a lift with two recruitment consultants who were comparing their iPhone 6 and 6+. After four floors I suffered an inexplicable attack of Tourettes and told them to shut the f*ck up.

    Surely we're missing a key piece of information here: Were these people bald before they got their iPhone 6?

    You're holding it wrong

    Also, your hair is too thin.

    I would hazard a guess that these baldies if not truly bald actually have very short hair around their ears or a very short hair cut overall. As a result the hair is stiff and able to penetrate any gap in order to get caught and pulled out. Of course this does not detract from the fact that the problem did not exist before and therefore it is a design fault by Apple and they should be lambasted for it. I believe Mr Jobs had a short haircut so this would not have happened if he was still about. Could be time for a new style rubber bumper that covers the gap.

    It's been pulling out the hairs on my ears, thus saving me from buying an "ear (and nose) hair trimmer". Thank you Apple for saving me from the embarrassment of using an ear hair trimmer.

    Only 9 people have complained to Apple about bent phones

    (and lived)

    "What, this joker says some of his disgusting hair got caught in our baby, dispatch a swat team to his house and kill him immediately"

    The media in America is so well controlled by the corporations, that they literally COULD get away with this. I speculate that they are getting away with it. I don't have any proof, but that's just because they control the media and the politicians, so we're not gong to get proof anytime soon. But they done it.

    A normal reaction would be like "yeah some people don't get along with our phone but that's okay because we're not trying to own your soul or anything" but instead they have the sociopathic response of "everything we do is perfect and you must accept it, you will accept it, if you dont, you are sick in the head, freak!"

      The rounded corners on your phone are clearly hyperbol(a)e.

    What rubbish you people at the Register write. How can anyone take any of your stories seriously?

    WHAT! ..............................people can use the iPhone to telephone people. Clearly the hair pulling feature is designed to discourage this sort of thing.
