Are iPhones Bulletproof, or is this total BS ??? James investigates

Earlier this year we wrote about a British teenager whose life was apparently saved by an Apple iPhone 5C. We were skeptical so I asked James to test how plausible this was.

In this TFBTV video, James tests two iPhone 5Cs and an iPhone 4 at point-blank range, using everyday items like duct tape, cotton fabric, and spaghetti squash. How the the iPhones fare against a Remington 870 Police Shorty?

We were all surprised by the results!

Let us know what other gun myths you want us to test.
