iPhone user begs for help as 'Now Playing' feature won't stop showing adult video they watched
| Last updated
In this day and age, everyone is constantly sharing videos.
But sometimes, what you watch when you're alone should remain private - as people would never look at you the same again.
So, imagine the panic this man suffered when the name of the X-rated video he observed was plastered across his phone screen.
Let's just say, it was distasteful to say the least.
The title of the adult clip was somehow stuck on the bloke's 'Now Playing' widget on the lock-screen of his iPhone.
The feature allows you to pause, play, rewind and fast-forward - while giving you a constant running reminder of what you were just eyeballing.
In this case, it was something that none of us would want to see. Even the name paints enough of a gruesome picture.
He shared a post on the iPhone subreddit pleading for 'help making this go away'.
The social media user explained: "So I watched a type of video on my phone a few days ago.
"It is no longer open in any web browser, it is not saved on my phone, yet every now and then when my Bluetooth connects this s**t pops up on my Home Screen.
"Any idea why it’s doing that?”
The post obviously garnered a mixture of responses - with some offering tech tips, while others took the opportunity to share some wisecracks.
Either way, it caused a stir. Most people were just downright stunned by the genre of the raunchy video.
One person said: "I know I will never gripe about my notification flag again, because that’s… definitely worse."
Another recommended: "Play some music or something on the music app."
A third wrote: "Looks like you're in a hairy situation."
A fourth commented: "Play something on the app you used to watch the porn. Then close that app. I think that should fix it."
And a fifth added: "This has to be satire."
The bloke later told users that he had updated the software on his iPhone in the hopes it would get rid of the explicit content from his lockscreen.
"Maybe that will keep it from popping up again," he said.
"It doesn’t do it immediately is the thing, it just shows back up a few hours later."
The second hand embarrassment is real. Take his experience as a warning, lads.
