A prank video is apparently tricking some people into making a small hole in the bottom of their iPhone 7s so they have a standard headphone jack.
The new iPhone has only a lightning port. The prank video shows a man drilling a 3.5mm hole into the bottom left edge of the iPhone 7 held in a vice. It points to the row of small holes on the left side that replaced the headphone socket present on the iPhone 6S and claims that drilling into the second hole on the left reveals a hidden socket. The description reads:
This video is for those who don’t want to get $159 wireless airpods or have to insert your headphones into an adapter every time you listen to music.
Once the hole has been drilled the video shows an iPhone 7 playing music, although the sound comes out of the speakers, not the headphones now inserted in the DIY hole.
Some people have fallen for it and they’re not happy.
