If you’re going to smuggle iPhones, you might as well do it en masse.

Per 9to5Mac, one Chinese man seemingly couldn’t wait for an official Apple wearable, and tried to smuggle no less than 94 iPhones from Hong Kong – where they are cheaper – into mainland China by wearing them inside his clothes.

Initial reports stated that the man was pulled aside by customs officials as a result of his “weird walking posture, joint stiffness, muscle tension.”

It’s unknown which iPhone models were involved, but the total value of the iPhones would likely exceed US$50,000, making his saran-wrapped iPhone suit one of the most expensive suits in the world.


Black market iPhone 6 Plus prices had reached over US$3,000 during the period when they were not officially available in China. Apple’s more official retail outlets are growing rapidly in the country, with Tim Cook pledging to boost the number of Apple Stores in the country from 15 to 40 within two years.

Still, 94 iPhones…

You’ve gotta give the man an a for effort, there…
