A lot of money would have been saved had these proud owners of iPhone 7 hadn’t tried to drill their own headphone jacks into their brand-new iphones.
As we all know, Apple’s new iPhone 7 has two ear pods but no headphone jack on the handset. That said, a lot of prank videos surfaced on YouTube, directing hapless owners in drilling their own headphone port.
TechRax, a popular YouTuber, took advantage of the users’ disappointment and made a seemingly innocuous DIY video showing users how they could literally drill themselves a new headphone jack on the iPhone 7. Do NOT be fooled by it!
In the video, a man uses a clamp to keep the phone still between the clips and then he drills the port in the iPhone.
Following the video, many £600-handsets were destroyed within no time. The stupid video tells people exactly how to drill a port without damaging their handsets—a thing which is nearly inevitable.
The video was watched 8 million times and many people left their concerns in comments, asking for clarifications on their doubts.
“I tried this and ended up with display destruction and it not working… I really committed the biggest mistake of my life by watching his video,” wrote James Ceja.
