Pro Tip: You Cannot Drill a Headphone Jack Into the iPhone 7

...

Attention, iPhone 7 owners: under no circumstances is it a good idea to try to create your own headphone jack by drilling a hole into the phone. It's not going to work, and you'll just wind up with a busted phone.

This advice should go without saying, but some people are apparently easily duped. YouTube channel TechRax recently posted a video showing a "secret hack to get headphone jack on the iPhone 7." This "hack" involves placing the phone in a vice to keep it steady, then taking a 3.5mm drill bit to its underside where the headphone jack would normally be.

"I found a perfect solution to this problem, guys. It's a very simple tutorial, just follow along," the narrator says, flipping the phone around in his hands, before putting it in the vice and going to work. Check out what happens for yourself in the video below.

Obviously, the video is just a joke and TechRax is trolling Apple for its controversial decision to remove the headphone jack from its latest handset. It's hard to believe anyone would believe the advice is serious, but...you never know.

"Help! Now my old headphones fit in but the phone doesn't work anymore!" one commenter writes, we hope in jest. The video has already racked up more than 10 million views, so with that kind of audience, we wouldn't be surprised if a few fell for it.

Similar hoaxes have vexed iPhone users in the past, from those who thought iOS 7 made their phones waterproof to people who thought microwaving a phone would charge its battery (Spoiler: it does not).
