BGR has an extraordinary tale of an online prank that has gone very wrong indeed for some gullible iPhone 7 owners. It seems that YouTube channel TechRax posted a parody video entitled “Secret Hack To Get Headphone Jack on the iPhone 7” that makes fun of the whole iPhone 7 headphone jack removal furore.
Basically, the video suggests that you use a drill to make a headphone jack in your shiny new iPhone. You can’t really blame TechRax for having a bit of a laugh; they probably didn’t expect anyone to actually take their video seriously, but it appears that some hapless users may well have done so, with some people leaving comments underneath the video stating that they have actually followed the advice in the video and drilled a hole in their iPhone 7! Of course there’s no way of knowing if the comments are genuine, but doubtless there’s always someone gullible enough to actually try. The prank has certainly paid off in one respect, with more than 10 million views for the video.
