Over the last few weeks there has been a whole load of negativity surrounding the new iPhone’s emission of the famous headphone jack and rightly so.
Apple, a company who pays barely any tax despite being one of the world’s largest corporations, had the audacity to find a brand new way to rip off its customers- by charging an extra £150 or so to buy the wireless AirPods (which you’ll almost certainly lose).
So YouTuber TechRax decided enough was enough and was longing to go back to the good ol’ days where you could just listen through your bog standard headphones- by literally drilling a headphone jack into his new iPhone 7.
But you know that old saying of if it sounds too good to be true, it almost certainly is? Well it looks like a load of people on YouTube didn’t quite get that this DIY experiment was clearly a bunch of bull.
In just seconds, he had successfully drilled a 3.5-mm ‘headphone jack’ into the phone and could play music through it, though of course you couldn’t tell if it was coming from the built-in phone speakers or the wired Apple headphones.
But it seems a bunch of gullible YouTube commenters fell for it and tried the crazy stunt themselves, failing miserably in the process. They must be hating humanity so much right now.
As you’d expect the comments were absolutely priceless, here’s just a few of the best:
Moral of the story? Don’t believe everything you see on the internet.
