In the video we appreciate how the environment is functional, moving on the iPhone with a mouse. Undoubtedly, a rather curious feat, especially considering that the teenager is only 6 years old.

“Believe it or not, I will be using it in a production environment: I plan to use this iPhone as a server to alleviate capacity issues with my home servers. I am 16 years old and I run several club websites in my school and various servers. of games for my friends, and I want to distribute some load on the iPhone to relieve the main server. “
