Of course, it's entirely possible that the YouTube commenters are simply trolling back TechRax and his drilling antics. However, this is the internet we're talking about, so we certainly wouldn't bet against some folk unwittingly turning their new iPhones into rather expensive paperweights.
Here's the clip that has caught so much attention:
Seems just like your typical not-very-funny joke, right? Well spare a thought for those who have seemingly taken the advice on board and harmed their new device in the process:
We hope that these people are joking, and that nobody has seriously drilled a hole in their device in the hope of retrieving the old 3.5mm headphone port.
Apple's decision to remove this omni-present feature was always going to be met with resistance. If you want the perks of the iPhone 7 but don't want to lose the port, there are other ways for you to achieve your goals besides these very drastic measures.
Though we trust that our wonderful readers won't have gone to such extremes, it pays to be mindful that following any at-home gadget repair / mod tutorials -- from the serious to the plain silly such as this -- will almost always void your warranty.
Be careful out there!
