Putting one of the most expensive smartphones on the market through a blender may seem like a bad idea، but for one YouTube star it's all in a day's work، daily mail reported.
Incredible footage has revealed the moment the social media celebrity pulverises his iPhone X in a blender and then tries to drink the juice.
Over the course of his career، the vlogger has used everything from boiling water to dynamite to put the iPhone through its paces.
The stunt was the brainchild of Taras Maksimuk، known as TechRax، who is based in Rocklin، California.
The Ukranian-born social media celebrity continues a long obsession with trying to destroy iPhones in new and increasingly extreme ways.
In the clip the YouTuber، who has 6.2 million subscribers، can be seen placing the top of the range gadget £999 ($999) inside a blender.
Speaking in the video، he said: 'What I'm going to do today، is throw this iPhone X in a blender، shred it up to little pieces، mix it with water in the little container، and try and filter the water.'
After blending the iPhone، Mr Maksimuk puts the shards of twisted metal and plastic into a glass container and mixes it with water.
This results in a strangely bubbling grey liquid، which Mr Maksimuk then attempts to drink through a LifeStraw - a filter designed to make dirty water drinkable.
He then spits out the contents، rather than consume it.
It's not the first time Mr Maksimuk has hit the headlines with his bizarre antics.
In September 2016، he threw an iPhone 7 Plus off the Burj Khalifa - the world's tallest building - in Dubai، and unsurprisingly، it didn't survive.
In April 2017، a special edition (Red) iPhone 7 handset was pitted against the destructive force of 25 lbs (around 11 kg) of black powder - and surprisingly survived the encounter.
The iPhone comes out relatively unscathed - despite the extreme flash of intense light and heat produced by the resulting explosion.
And in October 2017، a £799 ($799) iPhone 8 plus was placed inside a waffle iron for three minutes and surprisingly survived with relatively little damage.
