World’s biggest fool tosses iPhone 7 off world’s tallest building

YouTuber TechRax already has already piqued iPhone 7-related annoyance this month, with a parody video during which he drilled a hole into the handset to replace the missing headphone jack.

Now he’s at it again and, after duping some poor souls last time around, it’s unlikely folks are going to be repeating his latest stunt. At least we’d hope not.

TechRax has now filmed himself tossing an iPhone 7 off the world’s tallest building, the 2,722ft/829m Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

The brand new iPhone 7 Plus handset was apparently (we’re not convinced the stunt is legit) tossed off the 148th floor observation deck, without any regard for who might be walking below.

While we can’t claim to be physicists, a little common sense tells us the phone would have probably picked up  a fair bit of speed on the way down and could have seriously injured any poor passer-by.

The tremendous numbskull in question then checked Find My iPhone in iCloud and, unsurprisingly, the device couldn’t be traced.

Our only consolation is that any money made through the viewership of the video below probably went to pay for the iPhone 7 Plus in the first place.
