Hoax: Do Not Try To Charge Your iPhone In The Microwave

An iPhone hoax has surfaced a day after Apple released its new iOS 8 operating system.

It’s telling users to charge their iPhones in the microwave.

Obviously, that isn’t going to work, and it will mean the end of your iPhone.

The hoax has gone viral on Twitter with several users posting an alleged ad from Apple about the iOS 8 “Wave” technology.

“You can now Wave-charge your device by placing it within a household microwave for a minute and a half,” it says.

It also says, “iOS 8 contains new drivers that interface with your device’s radio-baseband allowing it to synchronize with microwave frequencies.”

Obviously none of these are true.

Some Twitter users have posted photos of burned up iPhones.

Others are posting warnings to other iPhone users not to fall for the trick.

The iPhone hoax appears realistic because it looks like an official Apple advertisement, complete with the copyright symbol at the bottom and the perfect use of fonts.
