Users were told to take a 3.5mm drill to make a hole in the handset where a headphone jack used to appear

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.

Furious James Ceja commented on the video: “I tried this and ended up with display destruction and it not working… I really committed the biggest mistake of my life by watching this video.”

David Iriarte added: “A friend of mine told me it worked for him, but my iPhone won’t turn on after I drilled the hole for the jack.

“I checked and it was the 3.5mm drill, so I made no mistake there! What happened? Any of you have the same problem?”

Toekneechair questioned: “Ok I am sure it’s in the comments somewhere but my friend told me to ask what size drill bit am I supposed to use?

“Also I don’t have that clamp thingy, can I or my friend hold it while we drill? I don’t want to ruin my phone.

“Thanks for all the help guys…”
