SwitchBack : Well that was interesting.

Nithyanadhan .V : So, now what? A #HeliumGate?

ricky v : This is really cool. I would have never guessed this. Hey, you’re not only making repair guides now. You’re also making destruction guides. (:

Steve Shajan : Next time it will be allergic to Oxygen

佐藤 - Satō : *_I guess I’m going to carry helium everywhere now!_* 😂

EruYagami : New IP69 rating: helium resistance, next to water and dust...

Raffe Dwab : This is completely unacceptable. At their price, iPhones should not have to deal with atoms and molecules.

Dr_Kachu san : Red should name their next phone Red Helium to poke fun at.

SNSD Sunny : Oh crap now my $1000 phone can't withstand helium.

Kay JB : Wow such an interesting incident. Thanks for reporting this iFixit!

Meledyne : Alright all my friends with iPhones prepare for April fools! 😏

tomek5503 : Apple iPhone Xs. Now with helium detection feature!

LOL dude : *mems chip* one letter short from perfection

Angel Hernandez : Here comes uboxs “iPhones have a huge problem video”

sprakful : Apple now ll say this is a feature to sa save our users.

Federico Velutini : But Apple phones aren't any skinnier than androids...

Alex Dollar : I got free replacement for my iPhone because of this little trick 😂😂

Lelouch Lamperouge : Where can I buy helium phones which are more amazing then android phones.😂🤣 (Because it has the capability to kill Apple Phones.)

Inspiraattori : What about adding poison gas detector chip to all devices that warning dangerous environment and probably can save lives? Innovation 😎

Fardin Khan : My brothers an iPhone user and theres a birthday party going on next door...

jimbob9631 : Android weakness: battery life Apple weakness: Earth's atmosphere

ghlow : * high pitched voices * hey man did your phone crash? yeah. lol how weird mine too

Rasberry Pie Soda : Apple Lover: iPhone is better >:( Android Lover: *Puts AL's iPhone in a Ziploc with helium* Apple Lover:

Not ItzCrazy Rocket League & More : Apple devices cant get high then Get it helium makes things float

The Creeper King : Tried it, my Android phone was floating all day, smh. My iPhone though just floated and didn’t work.

Bo Bu : Woow helium is kryptonite for iPhones. There goes the $1,000 plus dollar metal brick

Holo : Wait There are things that *can't* destroy apple devices?

Tiago Miranda : Going by this logic, probably the phone goes down faster with Hydrogen. If only that gas wasn't as flamable as a overcharged Li-ion battery

Husam Mirie : So what we learnd is if you are going to an expedition to Jupiter Dont take an iPhone with you 🤣.

chg702 : 1:53 it looks like faster than 1:51 just fast forward or actually overclocked?

kombajndosalatek : 0:06 lie already. Why wouldn't I believe it? Is it about aliens landing on earth and eradicating entire human species?

Zishan : I'm allergic to iPhones..

RizzY The Memeiest : Now that's an original comment right here

Lennard R. : Would be funny if the I phone just speeds the clock up (like the human voice with helium)

Themadbird : Random comment... but with that amount of helium in the air wouldn't it be bad for the humans that where in the hospital? As the helium would kick out the oxygen.

C. M. : Who would win? -a piece of fine technology -some weird tiny boi

Sky C : The more you know 😅

Andrew Mackoul : I can see people falsifying warranty claims and getting a new iPhone...

SHADY. AMV : I just know this is getting copyed but HeliumGate!

Crispy Joking Tuna : weird funny and sad all in one and interesting

ahmad furquan : I'm gonna present my boss 100 of helium Baloons this Christmas..... He just purchased iPhone Xs. Its gonna be fun. 😁😉

s.s shetty : That iPhone is a paid actor 😀😀

Dekkia : How does the Helium Stop the Clock? It get's into the Chip and then?

Piyush Parmar : This proves iPhone has more human behaviour. PS: It's jus' works, when it works! iPhone is an iPhone.
