The fake phones were allegedly smuggled into Russia by a Chinese man who was then arrested. According to Cult of Mac, the man was later fined $65, and the fake Apple technology was smashed by the excavator.
Although the devices are fake, I must admit they look very real. If I had not known the devices were not real, I would’ve assumed they were just smashing iPhones for fun. The thought of smashing real iPhones is horrifying to anyone who is a fan of Apple’s flagship phone.
