Many people are complaining that their new iPhone 6 is slowly changing color as the dye from their jeans is rubbing off on the plastic strips found on the reverse side of the phone.
An investigation by BGR reveals that “Dyegate” is becoming a problem for iPhone 6 customers. People say their phones are turning blue after weeks of removing and inserting the phone into their jean pockets.
BGR reports that it’s difficult to get the blue stains off the plastic strips. However, we’ve heard that the blue coloring can be removed by wiping the phone down and that Apple hasn’t received any formal complaints about the issue.
The iPhone has seen its share of controversy since it went on sale. First there was “Bendgate,” in which people complained that the iPhone 6 would bend if stored in a pocket.
Apple moved quickly to dismiss the claims, playing down the number of people affected, but damning video evidence showed that the phone could indeed be bent if enough pressure were applied in the right place.
There were also claims the iPhone 6 was ripping out the hair of its customers, after some people complained that the seam between the screen and the case would catch hair.
