Why Are Chinese (and Japanese) People Sniffing Their iPhones?Brian Ashcraft4/25/12 4:30amFiled to: iPhoneAppleChinaJapanKotakueastFbtweet73EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkFolks in China are apparently putting their iPhones under their nostrils and giving them a good old sniff. What do they smell? Pineapples. Yum. Many Chinese are saying the iPhone's headphone jack smells like pineapple while charging. Online, thread after thread confirms the odor, with some even claiming that the iPhone emits whiffs of peach, apple, or mango. Maybe they're just confusing regular iPhones with China's delicious iPhone 5?
