When Apple revealed the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at the 7 September event, most people could not come to terms with the fact that the latest iPhone devices have no headphone jacks. Okay, we get it; change is hard. But this concern of users has landed them in a trap.
A YouTube video has been circulating on the internet, promoting a hoax iPhone hack that promises to restore the 3.5mm headphone jack in the iPhone.
The video advises users to put their phone in a clamp and then use a 3.5mm drill (OMG!!!) to create a headphone jack near the spot where they are usually situated on previous models of the iPhone.
The man in the video proudly declares, "And just like that, you have your own 3.5mm headphone jack!"
We don't have to tell you, this will not give you a headphone jack! All you will be left with is a useless hole, and a damaged-beyond-repair iPhone. However, some iPhone users have been so desperate to get the old iPhone technology that they actually tried it.
One user commented on the video, "I've just done this but there is no sound coming from the headphones. I used an exact 3.5mm drill bit but the connector doesn't sit flush in the hole for some reason. The phone doesn't even detect the headphones are in. Are there any settings I need to change?"
Watch the video below. But please don't use a drill on your iPhone 7.
