10 Best iPhone Pranks

Updated on August 23, 2017

Have More Fun With Your iPhone

Lately, I have been having so much fun with my iPhone. I turned it from a business tool into a prank machine. It is so fun to see the reactions on people's faces when I play with their minds.

People never expect crazy things to happen with a phone and that makes it the perfect tool for pranks. I have put together a list of my favorite iPhone prank apps. Try them out and you'll see why I'm having so much fun! These apps can all be downloaded or purchased from the Apple iTunes or App Store.

Red Light Buster for iPhone Pranks

It's amazing how many people fall for this one. It makes it look like you have control over red lights. With a little practice, friends will think you are zipping right through without having to wait for traffic.

Ghost Camera Pro for iPhone Scares

Ghost Camera Pro superimposes spooky ghost images onto images you take with your phone camera, making it look like you snapped photographic evidence of the supernatural. This app is super easy to use, letting you edit pictures quickly to add in a spectral friend. Try taking a ghostly photo of your friend's house to make her or him think it's haunted!

iBeer: Drink Your iPhone

When you are at the party, make it look like you are drinking right from your iPhone. This goofy app turns your iPhone screen into a convincing-looking glass of beer. It also uses the iPhone's motion sensors to make it look like you're drinking or sloshing beer around when you tip it toward you mouth. The liquid level even drops as you drink. It also comes with cola, mouthwash, or water options.

iFart: Best Fart Machine App for iPhone

What prank list would be complete without some sort of fart app? There are so many in the App Store, it is rumored that Apple isn't taking any more. This is the best of the best. There are all sorts of options to use such as different sounds and timers to punk unsuspecting friends.

Fake Calls Phone Call Simulator

Have you ever been in a meeting that was awkward or boring, and just wouldn't end? What about a bad first date? This app can get you out of the room. Set the timer and it will simulate a fake phone call, giving you a reason to step out. Poof! No more meeting.

iBug: Best Bug App for iPhone

This bug app is from the same people who made the iBeer app. If bugs creep any of your friends out, this is for you. Your phone will look like there is a nasty little creepy crawler scooting around. If you're not in a pranking mood, you can also play with the simulated bug in pet mode or tickle mode.

Scary Screamer App for iPhone

This is a fun prank to watch. Your victim starts out playing a normal-looking skill game and gets sucked into the competition. Once they are really into it, a scary hideous face pops out at them with a blood-curdling scream. It works best with people who are very competitive.

Crack & Break It: Cracked Screen Prank

This is a classic iPhone prank. Borrow your friend's phone and install this app, which will make it look like the screen has been cracked. Hand the phone back to them and enjoy their stunned reaction!

Old Fart Booth: Funny Photobooth iPhone App

Tell your friends that this app scans their faces and will generate a picture of them 10 years in the future. It is pretty convincing with the special effects and then *pow!* a funny picture of a really old man or woman. You'll get tons of laughs from everyone.

Fake-A-Text for iPhone Pranks

This fake texting app is similar to the fake phone calls app. You set the app to send your own phone a fake text message. Great for getting out of places you don't want to be!

      Another perfect prank app for larger groups especially good for people that sing or humm all the time is "Singing Buddy". Present this app as a tune corrector, missing lyrics finder ...(your fantasy there). After recording it "analyzes" the signal. And gives you two buttons original and result. Original is what it was recorded and when the result is pressed then a donkey comes out and a donkey voice is heard instead.

      I had a lot of fun with "Brainalizer" app on my iPhone. Pretends to analyze the brain signals. My friends faces are priceless when they see their name show up on the screen :)

      Another app I really liked is "BellyCam2." Lotta fun to prank a pregnant woman in a gentle, non-scary way.

      I tried a fun prank app called farter on the Amazon app store and we could not stop laughing. Farter even works on the kindle fire. Farter is prank app and not like other fart apps.

      I pointed the prank farter app at my friends one by one and once it detected the fart culprit, it screamed out â Farter â Farter â. It works by gently tilting the phone but no one can tell how I was doing it. It is the best prank app I have had!
