What do you do when spends hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars on an iPhone 7, but are too cheap to spring for the $159 wireless AirPods because the device doesn’t accommodate classic earbud input?
If you’re like some owners you google for alternatives, stumble across a Secret Hack to Get Headphone Jack on the iPhone 7 video on Youtube and follow its instructions. Place the iPhone 7 in a vice, use a power drill with bit and drill a hole into the bottom of the phone. Yes, as the video demonstrates, that’s all you have to do.
If you believe that I’ve got some oceanfront property in Arizona to sell you.
The video’s creator, Taras Maksimuk, tweeted that people were actually complaining to him after following the video.
