Here’s how you smuggle 94 iPhones over the Chinese border – or not

“A man has been arrested at the Chinese border for attempting to enter China with 94 iPhones strapped to his body, according to a Sina news report,” Russell Brandom reports for The Verge.

“A citizen of Hong Kong, the man had strapped rings of iPhones around his thighs, torso, calves, and crotch, using a combination of plastic bags and masking tape,” Brandom reports. “Pictures show both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The phones have been seized and are currently being held by customs officials.”

“According to the report, so-called ‘mobile armor’ is a fairly common tactic for phone smugglers,” Brandom reports. “Police noticed this particular smuggler due to ‘weird walking posture, joint stiffness, and muscle tension,’ an obvious result of covering your entire body in touchscreens.”
