What Happens When You Shoot an iPhone with a Rifle

Published on:

They may be selling for as much as $10 000 on eBay but that hasn't stopped someone deciding that the best thing to do to a gold coloured iPhone is to shoot it with a high calibre rifle.

Richard Ryan, a video blogger with an exaggerated presentation style dunked an iPhone 5s into a bowl of water and dropped onto concrete as a series of endurance tests.

But then, mounted into an upright stand, and from some distance, he fired a single bullet from a Barrett M82A1 sniper rifle.

Unsurprisingly, while it survived the initial tests, the bullet killed it completely.

You may want to jump ahead in the video to about 2:25m in to get to the bullet show.­
