It began on Sept. 18, when the very first iPhone 6 to be unboxed took a tipsy-tumble to the ground. After that, things started going downhill fast.
While men in skinny jeans deserve whatever justice the universe is willing to mete out, the iPhone 6 should be able withstand a day of driving, eating and dancing without getting all bent out of shape, right?

This began as a 4chan prank trying to convince new, proud owners of the iPhone 6 that they could wirelessly charge their phones by cooking them in the microwave.
The pranksters did a pretty convincing job making it look like a legit iOS 8 feature. But, as you can see, it's not. The devastating prank has left many helpless iPhone 6 owners to cry over the melted plastic and cloud of smoke.
In fact a new study has found that the iOS 8 crashes nearly 80 percent more often than the iOS 7. Crittercism, which is a mobile apps performance management company representing big clients like Pinterest and Netflix, says not only is iOS 8 crash rate 78 percent higher than iOS 7, but that the performance of the new platform has deteriorated even further since the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. And iOS 8.0.1, which was meant to fix all of the problems with iOS 8, wound up disabling cellular service and Touch ID for several iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users.
When people discovered they now had to download a separate app to replace the Camera Roll feature, let's just say, they were pretty peeved.

Maybe Apple can break the curse on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus by tackling these problems as soon as possible. But the iPhone is a pretty expensive piece of equipment for consumers to gamble on, especially with tragic press like this. Kinda makes a good old-fashioned Android sound downright enviable.
