Hoards of Apple customers fall for iPhone 7 'secret hack'
Whenever there's a new product release, it likely won't be perfect -- and people will surely complain about it. This is exactly what happened with the iPhone 7, in which Apple got rid of the headphone jack.
Also typical of new releases is people trying to "hack" the product so its issue is fixed. One YouTuber, TechRax, took advantage of this tendency to hack and posted a satiric video. The only problem was that some did not know it was satire.
TechRax posted a video entitled "Secret Hack To Get Headphone Jack on the iPhone 7," where he uses a drill to bore a hole in the iPhone:
As you can imagine, the hole did not work as a headphone jack and TechRax intended the video to be a joke. Some of the over seven million people that have watched the video, however, did not get that memo. Several owners of the iPhone 7 began actually drilling holes, thinking that it will mimic a headphone jack.

Needless to say, this did not turn out well -- and the comments section of the videos prove it. Some asked TechRax why it did not work for them, while others are irate that they fell for the prank. Crave gathered a handful of these comments:
Whether you buy Apple's new "air pods" for your iPhone 7, whatever you do: do not drill a hole in the new phone.
