Jimmy Kimmel pulls the same iPhone prank, but this time with an iPad mini

iPod Touch was the iPad mini, with similar results.The first time around, Jimmy's team told people that the iPhone 4S was the iPhone 5, and as you would expect, people spit back the usual Apple buzzwords like "thinner", "lighter", "faster". Then, the team pulled the same prank, but told people that the
This time around, Kimmels team goes even deeper into the absurdity by telling people that the iPad mini was the newly announced iPhone 5s, and somehow still got people to claim that the device was "smaller", "thinner", and "lighter" than the last iPhone. They even got one girl to lick the screen and claim that she could taste chocolate.
If these people really are random people off of the street, and not paid actors, we can understand not being aware of what would set apart the new iPhone from the last, but to believe that an iPad mini is an iPhone takes a special kind of ignorance about technology.

Prove that the average apple consumer (still) knows nothing about tech. You could sell them dishwasher telling them its a fridge and they'd believe it. Not to mention the many people who have brought mirrors believing them to be ipads. (One should be able to tell from its weight)

This is not funny anymore. Honestly, it's time we all agree that 90% of apple buyers are idiots. No wonder they settle for the same thing each year. I mean like seriously? Apple can sell a 8'' iPhone and to their customers it will be okay cos apple says 8'' is cool for a phone. It's just a pitty
