The lack of an audio jack on the iPhone 7 and the price of the “airrbuds” seem to have traumatised the users as some of them have drilled in holes in their sets to create a new jack. Although the removal of the audio jack technology was intended to enhance the lifespan of the iPhone 7, users falling prey to a stupid viral video have ended of destroying their handsets. A youtube video, doing rounds on the internet that promotes a fake iPhone hack promising to “restore your headphone jack”. The video suggests that people place their iPhone 7s in a clamp and use a 3.5mm drill to dig a hole into the place where headphones are to be inserted.
The voice of the man in the video proudly says, “And just like that, you have your own 3.5 mm headphone jack!” Now, unless the voice in the video has David Tenant’s legendary powers of persuasion, it is quite impossible to fall for that delusional method. The drilling of your phone will not give you a new audio jack but a destroyed $849 worth of property. It is, however, funny that some of the users, after destroying their phones have still not understood the idiocy of delusions and asked questions about the phone not detecting the headphones.
Though this is not the first time, iPhone users have been cheated by fake videos and information roaming around on the internet. One of the earlier videos asked the users to charge the video by putting it in a microwave.
While the iPhone 7 is too costly to buy for the “common man”, it is hurtful to see users destroying their handsets with a drill machine after believing in a ridiculous video.
