    I just don’t get the point of literally breaking a phone on camera!

    Most likely for the views and ad/click revenue.

    It’s like a train wreck - you can’t look away. 6 million + viewers is something...

    For views. That’s how they make their money.

    This is why https://socialblade.com/youtube/user/everythingapplepro. And that's before any sponsored videos.

    Also, I like his vids but I have to believe he doing just a bit of Applecare Fraud.

    Either way, they are entertaining because it helps you understand how durable the phone is. Some YouTubers mindlessly destroy the phone and that's annoying. EAP at least puts some thought into it.

    He’ll make enough to buy a whole stack of new iPhones with the ad revenue.

    He could’ve at least reviewed the phone first, no unboxing video or anything just straight to breaking them.

    That’s literally what he does lol. He has hundreds if not thousands of iPhones in his collection.

    EverythingApplepro is about click revenue. Stupid videos for people easily entertained by the meaningless.

    Two guys running into each other at full speed is probably equally meaningless, but millions of people pay lots of money to watch football. That’s just how entertainment is.

    Yeah and he just makes stuff up as he goes.. I agree with you. I refuse to watch his crap as there is NO value in my opinion in what he does... NONE!

    If you get 1 million views out of that crap, AdSense gives you enough cash to get three other phones and then some. It's a sound business decision.

    If you have enough money and it doesn't come from an animal, why not?

    His drop tests aren't exactly scientific. There's too much variance in angle to actually give a good indication of how durable the glass is. And real-world drops have an enormous number of factors that no drop test in controlled conditions can account for, so they are almost pointless to begin with.

    This. The pursuit of views is what’s leading to all of these ridiculous videos.

    The only thing remotely interesting about these destruction videos, it does kind of show you the construction of the iPhone and what it’s capable of handling under various stresses that would not likely be in everybody’s situation. But I don’t subscribe or care to watch EverythingApplePro in general.

    Gives you insight into the build quality and durability without destroying your own investment.

    It’s useful information. Especially the scratch tests. He makes enough money from the videos to cover the cost of the phone.
