What you need to know
- The Caviar iPhone 11 Pro Max Cyberphone is a thing that exists.
- It's supposed to be based on Tesla's Cybertruck.
- This thing starts at $6,910.
We told you a few months ago that custom phone maker Caviar was making an iPhone based on Tesla's Cybertruck. We thought that was pretty silly. And it still is. Even more so now that we've seen the thing in the hands of YouTuber Marques "MKBHD" Brownlee.
Called the iPhone 11 Pro Max Cyberphone, this thing is huge. It's basically an iPhone 11 Pro Max with a big titanium case attached to it. And...that's about it.
Despite the rather lavish description Caviar gives it.
Anyway, here's what Marques makes of it. Needless to say, he isn't all that impressed. At all.
I'm sure some people will be all over this thing because it's different. Normally people with more money than sense buy hugely expensive sports cars and never drive them. This is likely to be a similar thing with someone buying this so they can show it to their friends and then toss it in a drawer.
If that's you, I have a question – can I borrow a few hundred dollars? I have a PS5 that needs buying.
