As Long As There Are Apple Products, There Will Be iGate
iGate [noun] - A persistent plague wherein each new iPhone is followed by a scandal: My iPhone's battery life is terrible; must be Chipgate.By Mikah Sargent | October 21, 2015
Ever since the introduction of the iPhone 4, Apple's massively popular smartphone has faced an unpleasant and persistent plague — one, in the spirit of said plague, we'll call iGate.
"We started to get some reports of people having issues with the antenna system. ... People were touching X marks the spot here and they were seeing a large drop in bars," said Steve Jobs. "And this has been since dubbed 'Antennagate.'"
Antennagate was the first "gate" controversy for Apple. If you held the iPhone 4 a certain way ("X marks the spot"), it would appear as though your signal dropped significantly. (Video via YouTube / Michael Gross)
