The depths people would go for Apple: Man jumps into sewer to retrieve his AirPods


People have been crazy about Apple products long before it first launched the iPhone in 2007. From lining up for days outside Apple stores to fighting tooth and nail to get the latest iPhones, there have been stories of people going to absolute extremes for their Apple devices.

In the latest incident, a man was seen jumping into a sewer to retrieve his beloved AirPods. In a viral Instagram video posted by Unilad, a man embarked on the daring mission of entering a sewer and looking for the AirPods he had dropped.
