If you’re unfortunate enough to be an iPhone 7 user, you might want to be aware of the following prank video making its rounds on the internet because countless people are falling for it. While the description of the following tutorial promises viewers that they can add a headphone socket to their phones by drilling a 3.5mm hole in the bottle left edge of the device, the result is anything but helpful, as the hole will completely screw your phone.
After dropping an insane amount of cash down to purchase the iPhone 7, many customers were extremely disappointed that their phone didn’t come with a hole to attach a set of headphones. So doing what most people do when confronted with a problem, they went to YouTube to see if there was a possible fix. That’s when an astounding 10 million people stumbled across Ukrainian YouTuber Taras Maksimuk video, who had a very believable “solution” to their problem. “Secret Hack To Get Headphone Jack on the iPhone 7,” the video description reads, followed by quick set of instructions under 2 minutes.
Anyone following Maksimuk’s instructions left furious with a completely ruined phone. In YouTube’s comment section, the backlash was strong, full of upset iPhone users having performed the Maksimuk’s set of instructions. Here’s a few of the funniest comments:
WTF??? F*** you! My screen turned black the moment I started drilling and now I can’t even open it,” one person said.
Several people put the caps lock on to get their anger across, angrily commenting:
“TECHRAX YOU PIECE OF SH*T I DID THIS AND THE SOUND DOESN NOT WORK AT ALL,” said Artur.
“ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I WAITD TILL MY DAD WAS SLEEP THEN I WENT TO THE GARAGE AND GOT HIS DIRLL AND DID THIS ND NOW MY IPHONE WONT NOT EVEN WORK!!!!! YOU ARE SUCH ASCUM BAG WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS IM GOING TO MAEK SURE YOUR UTUBE CHANNEL IS GETS SHUT DOWN,” Lukelaluke123 shouted.
Back in 2013, countless iPhone users were tricked into thinking they could instantly charge their phones by putting them in the microwave. Of course that was catastrophic to the device, instantly zapping the life out of it.
Funny…I don’t see android users falling for stupid crap like this. What’s up with that? 🙂
