What you need to know

  • People love their iPhones and use them for just about everything.
  • But this is the first time we've seen iPhones used as gate posts.
  • I can't think of a third point. I'm just gonna watch the video again.

People use their iPhones for everything from recording their kid's first steps to playing the latest Apple Arcade game. And it turns out that some people use iPhones when decorating their gate posts as well.

Because of course they do.

Just watch the video – and of course, it comes from TikTok!


It isn't clear whether these are whole iPhones or just the rear panels ripped off in the name of art. At this point I'm not sure it really matters – just enjoy the show. And wait for someone to be blinded when the sun bounces off a ton of reflective iPhones.

Do you have a weird use for an iPhone or, even better, a ton of them? Let me know in the comments!
