The iPhone 11 is a pretty nice handset, but the all-glass and metal design appear to be attracting more than buyers.

Multiple iPhone 11 owners are complaining the device is a dust magnet, including some techies who would presumably know what they are talking about.

One is Sriram Krishnan, angel investor and a product lead at Twitter, Facebook and Snapchat.

Others share his concern.

And it is not just techies but also regular users who are complaining;

The iPhone 11 is of course water and dust resistant, and if Apple did their job right this should not be a concern for the innards of the phone.  Some, however, worry about the abrasive nature of dust, particularly around the camera lens, and of the potential of the glass to get scratched there, to the degree that some are recommending lens protectors.

Have our iPhone 11-owning readers noticed this issue, which I will now dub dust-gate? Let us know in the comments below.
