YouTuber convinces people that drilling a hole in their iPhone 7 will reveal hidden headphone jack

 

More proof that humanity as a species may be doomed: a prank YouTube video claiming to show how drilling into an iPhone 7 will reveal its hidden 3.5mm headphone jack has apparently been fooling owners of Apple’s latest handset.

The viral clip, which comes from TechRax, has already gained close to 10 million viewers. According to the many comments beneath the video, a few people didn’t realized this is all a joke and have attempted the “secret hack,” which will ruin the waterproofing at best or destroy the phone at worst.

A lot of the comments that claim to have used the drill method are obviously fake and just joking about it themselves, but there are doubtlessly some who have actually given it a try - only to instantly regret it.

Ukrainian YouTuber Taras Maksimuk, who is based in Sacramento, California, produced the video. Looking at the titles of his other clips - “can the iPhone 7 survive in liquid nitrogen for five minutes?” and "What Happens If You Microwave an iPhone 7?” – shows how he “specializes in smashing technology for your pleasure.”

Ok but my question is where this guy is getting all of these iPhone 7s to microwave, drill, put in liquid nitrogen, etc... unless they're all the same phone? Either way, are there truly people idiotic enough to legitimately try this and not realize that this guy is either doing this for fun or to troll idiots like them? :smash:

How about the people who destroyed their iphones because they thought an OS update would make their phones waterproof per an advert.

They do. But they also don't get technology. A lot of it seems like magic to them. Honestly, people's reactions to the video do not surprise me.

Video claiming drilling into iPhone 7 will reveal hidden headphone port goes viral

The prank video shows a man drilling a 3.5mm hole into the bottom left edge of the iPhone 7 held in a vice. It points to the row of small holes on the left side that replaced the headphone socket present on the iPhone 6S and claims that drilling into the second hole on the left reveals a hidden socket.

Once the hole has been drilled the video shows an iPhone 7 playing music, although the sound comes out of the speakers, not the white headphones now inserted in the DIY hole.

  :crazy:

It appears that in our quest for advanced technology, we have lost all common sense.  :scratchhead:

Blind faith no critical thinking. This reminds of the time some people made a fake Apple ad telling you the latest firmware update will make your iPhone watter prof and people fell for it, thats just as dumb as trying to download more RAM.  :hysterical:
