  • Here's How Well iPhones Fare As Brake Pads

    Here's an idea we would suggest no one ever tries: replacing your car's brake pads with iPhones. Instead, EverythingApplePro will do it for you, just so you can see how dangerous it is and never do it. These are entertainment professionals with the proper safety equipment on hand; so, what could possibly go wrong?

    In this video, EverythingApplePro replaces the brake pads in his 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera with iPhones, varying from iPhone 4s to iPhone 5s models, and then speeds up and slows down in increments of 20 miles per hour, starting with 20 miles per hour, then trying 40 miles per hour, and finally trying 60 miles per hour.

    Not surprisingly, they didn't perform as well as brake pads, and they even experienced a fire that needed to be extinguished from the severe heat of trying to stop the vehicle. After the first couple of tests, the phones were unable to stop the car and the emergency brake needed to be pulled to stop the vehicle.

    It's also not surprising that the iPhones were unusable after the event. It's worth noting that the iPhone 4s models fared better than the iPhone 5s due to the harder metals in the construction of the frame.

      Next up! Apple Watch as brake pads. Ion X or Sapphire, place your bets!

      Stupid dangerous as well, good thing they did it on closed road.
      He gave up using the foot brakes to stop and end up pulled on the handbrakes to stop the car (using the rear brakes), I would too when the car start veering to the left because of ineffective braking on the right front where iPhone is mounted.
