Monkeys are known to roam around homes in search for food but this one particular monkey decided to grab an iPhone instead. Interesting enough, the phone didn’t end up in pieces and managed to live on to tell the tale, according to its owner Zackrydz Rodzi whose retelling of his experience has gone viral among local social media users.
Zackrydz explained to us earlier today that the incident took place at his home in Batu Pahat, Johor last weekend. At first, he was quite perplexed as there was no sign of a break-in and no other items were stolen from his home.
Furthermore, the casing for the iPhone XS Max was somehow left behind by the perpetrator. Around one and half-day later, he asked his brother to give a call to the phone while he roams around the back of his home in the last attempt to search for it.
As the story goes, he then heard the ringtone of his iPhone coming from the nearby jungle. After the iPhone was retrieved and cleaned, he then opens up the gallery of the iPhone which now contained several images and videos taken by the monkey that has been spending time playing around with his iPhone camera.
Something yang korang takkan jumpa setiap abad. Semalam pagi tido bangun bangun tengahari phone hilang. Cari cari satu rumah geledah sana sini semua takde then last last jumpa casing phone je tinggal bawah katil tapi phonenya takde. Sambung bawah. pic.twitter.com/0x54giujnY

Some of the output seemed not too bad at all and there is even a video of the
heist theft in progress:
For Zakrydz, it was a good thing that his iPhone was fully charged before he went to bed that night. Else, the iPhone XS Max might be out of battery before being able to find it once again. For the rest of us, you may want to consider storing your devices in a much secure area, as a general safety measure.
