People Fall for iOS 8 ‘Wave’ Hoax and Microwave Their Phones
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
Last year it was the ‘waterproof’ software update that clever, but evil, people over at 4chan thought up. Last time there were some that fell for it, and this time it’s no different. It isn’t the waterproof hoax that makes the rounds again, but rather the new iOS 8 Wave function. This time we heat it up a little bit instead of cooling it down.
In a clever made up, but fake, iOS 8 advertisement, people are told that they can charge their iPhones with their microwave after the update. It takes just about a minute. The fake advertising is being circulated via social networks, and some people are falling for it as it seems.
The mentioned information and function is utter non-sense, and the only thing that will happen is that your phone will burn and probably take your microwave with it to the afterlife. If unlucky you might even burn down your entire house. So don’t try this at home, or any place else for that matter.
There are always people who act first and think later, and as such you can find beautiful images on twitter, of fried iPhones with evil comments on the posters less intelligent actions.
