How to Prank an iPhone Owner

iPhone Prank: AP Mobile UFO Sighting

I wish I had been able to post this on April Fool’s Day. Nevertheless, here is a funny prank that you can play on an iPhone owner.

Pete describes how he changed his name in his wife’s iPhone contacts to “AP Mobile” and sent her a message alerting of a confirmed UFO discovery and claiming that the president would be addressing the issue in a speech that evening.

Since text messages and notifications appear the same way, you can use this tactic to prank anyone with an iPhone, provided you frame it to look like a notification from an app that you know the person has on their iPhone.

Has anyone ever played a prank like this on you?
