Video: What happens when an iPhone is dropped into boiling oil?


A video of an iPhone being dropped into a boiling pot of frying oil has gone viral.

Uploaded by TikTok user Zaiem Ainn (@zaiem_ainn) on Jan. 25, the video shows the Malaysian friend chicken vendor using his iPhone to take a video of his cooking. As he brings the smartphone closer to get a better look at the fried chicken, the iPhone is dropped into the boiling oil.

The video goes black as the phone sinks into the oil until the device is taken out of the pot. However, the iPhone continues recording as the owner shows a smile of relief in a second clip at the end of the video.
