Clueless iPhone 7 owners tricked into drilling a hole in their phones to ‘get a headphone jack’

(VIDEO GRABS) iPhone 7 owners tricked into DRILLING hole in their phones for headphones

Owners have copied the video’s instructions to place the phone in a clamp and take a 3.5mm drill to where the headphone hole used to be.

Needless to say drilling a hole into your iPhone will leave you with a very broken handset – and not the promised addition.

Apple’s newest model has ditched the jack in favour of bluetooth headphones to make more room for internal hardware.

But customers have been left angry at the decision – with some taking extreme measures to bring back the old hole.

As a result some desperate viewers were duped into destroying their new handsets with the cruel DIY tip.

Furious James Ceja commented on the video: “I tried this and ended up with display destruction and it not working… I really committed the biggest mistake of my life by watching this video.”

David Iriarte added: “A friend of mine told me it worked for him, but my iPhone won’t turn on after I drilled the hole for the jack.

“I checked and it was the 3.5mm drill, so I made no mistake there! What happened? Any of you have the same problem?”

Toekneechair questioned: “Ok I am sure it’s in the comments somewhere but my friend told me to ask what size drill bit am I supposed to use?

“Also I don’t have that clamp thingy, can I or my friend hold it while we drill? I don’t want to ruin my phone.
“Thanks for all the help guys…”

Instead of rushing to help the clueless users, cruel commenters have instead tricked them with false advice.

Mark Johnson wrote: “Since some people are still having issues, a bit of advice. The guy seems to have missed the part about cleaning the phone after drilling.

“In order to clean out the 3.5mm socket of debris from the drill you need to soak the phone in soapy water for around 15 minutes so all the drill shavings are loosened.

“Then give the phone a shake once you’re done. Hope this helps someone :)”

Ninjapleaz added: “If you want me to tell you how to fix it, just reply to this comment with your credit card number, expiration date and three digit code on the back… and I’ll tell you how to fix it.”

Apple ditched the headphone jack in favour of bluetooth headphones, which every handset comes equipped with.

Users can also buy headphonse that have a ‘Lightning Jack’ to plug into the phone’s charger port.

These won’t be usable with any other device – whereas the bluetooth ones will.

            Sadly, Hitler won because the majority of Germans supported him. Or at least disliked his opponents more than it disliked him and his thugs. And I am talking about 1933, not the late 30s when the Nazis’ popularity skyrocketed.

            These are (as usual) some very sharp observations, Jurek. But might it be they are a bit too complex/apocalyptic? The American party system has shown amazing resilience over the years (centuries, actually), so my bets are on it withstanding this storm.
