iPhone Tip: Use a Banana to Control Your iPhone (Video)

iPhone Tip: Use a Banana to Control Your iPhone (Video)

It is a common problem: it’s freezing, you’re outside and you desperately need to use your iPhone. However you cannot, since if you are wearing gloves, the iPhone will not respond. Fear not though, as a banana will apparently do the job.

A banana has a similar skin to a human (believe it or not!) and so the iPhone recognises it like a human finger. Grapes also work apparently, so if you have gloves on outside and have some fruit, it’s worth a shot. Chances are it will work.

I love discovering hidden uses for things, and hopefully this will come in useful. It will save you having to buy those pretty expensive gloves with metal fingertips, that’s for sure.
