Never heard of it. Not on any of the iPhone forums I frequent have I heard of this happening at all.

Well I don't recommend you try it. Looks bad.
This video is the only place I have seen this issue. Makes me wonder if it's just click bait for this dude's video. Until I see otherwise, I'll remain skeptical it even exists.

A quick google shows a number of stories on it:

I've seen it in a few places, he shows it on the video. I think it's real, I won't try though. This YouTuber is known for finding and reporting bugs like this.
