Just when Apple may have thought that any problems with the iPhone 4 were over, up pops another issue. It seems that complaints are coming in that the glass on the back of the iPhone 4 is cracking. It seems that some 3rd party cases can trap particles that can scratch the glass. These scratches eventually cause the glass to crack.

In a recent article it also stated that:

Even without the particulate, the phone can get scratched, leading to the same problem, it seems.

This has sent Apple’s engineers into a “quiet panic” trying to come up with a solution to the problem.

Apple just put Antennagate in its rear view mirror, and Block has already labeled this problem Glassgate.

Though there is just a single report of the problem, the world is waiting to see if anyone else encounters broken glass on the iPhone 4 back side.

We will just have to wait until Apple responds with their own analysis of the problem and if one even exists.
