Here’s How You Can Cut Your Old iPhone in Half [Video]



It’s been a long time since I shared ridiculous or funny videos somehow connected with Apple or its products with you, so I decided to fix this tiny problem. Below you can find a short clip showing a third generation iPhone cut in two pieces.

The video of the process is available on a YouTube channel called “Cut in Half”, so I guess the iPhone 3GS is not the first thing these experts, so to say, have ruined. If you’re interested in details, to kill the iPhone people behind this clip have used an OMAX waterjet, which is a powerful tool capable of cutting all kinds of materials.

What do you think about the video? Leave your comments below this short post.

iPhone 7 Plus Won’t Feature Smart Connector?



According to the latest report from a Japanese website Macotakara, Apple has changed its initial plans and won’t equip the iPhone 7 Plus (or Pro) with a Smart Connector. A funny thing about this rumor is that about a month ago, this same site, Macotakara, claimed all the rumors about the Smart Connector included in the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus were real and legitimate. It is up to you to decide whether to believe the latest report or not, but don’t say you haven’t been warned.
