    Some iPhone users will believe anything. I remember two years ago when there was the YouTube video showing you how to charge your iPhone quickly by microwaving it, and some people fell for it.

    Hi Roger, you are right but I think it is not specific to iPhone owner's. Today people will believe anything, if it is on internet it must be true.:)

    Agree. Add Youtube video or post on blog and people would believe anything. :)

    Perhaps Apple prefers damage to replaceable plastic objects rather than in-store human-on-human altercations/violence as a matter of established store employee policy. Outcomes when physically confronting a person with obvious mental issues can be unpredicatable and a threat to all in the store possibly resulting in legal liability for Apple. Likely an instance of wise restraint rather than lack of courage. I believe Apple store Geniuses are trained in computer science -- not Krav Maga.

    You can now pay for an iPhone 7 case that brings back the jack (no joke)
