    Morons drilled holes into their iPhones after watching hoax YouTube video...

    A fake YouTube video claiming to show users how to get the much-missed sound input has gone viral – with many unknowing victims following its lead.

    Owners have copied the video's instructions to place the phone in a clamp and take a 3.5mm drill to where the headphone hole used to be.

    Needless to say drilling a hole into your iPhone will leave you with a very broken handset - and not the promised addition.

    Apple's newest model has ditched the jack in favour of bluetooth headphones to make more room for internal hardware.

    But customers have been left angry at the decision - with some taking extreme measures to bring back the old hole.

    As a result some desperate viewers were duped into destroying their new handsets with the cruel DIY tip.

    Clueless users then complained their phones had stopped working after falling victim to the prank

    Idiots... I feel as most of them would be like 13 year Olds. Like a few years back I had a friend sell me his used iPhone 4 for $20 and I resold it for $300. He was originally gona drop test it...

    Few months ago, someone posted a video saying that you can hatch pokemon go eggs by putting the phone in microwave oven. Many stupid people did this.
