Spoof "iOS 7 Waterproofs Your iPhone" Ad Fools Gullible Phone Owners

Social media, tech literacy lacking


A fake Apple advert claiming the new iOS 7 software makes iPhones and iPads waterproof has apparently fooled some users into destroying their devices.

The "advert" circulating on social media sites claims that updating devices with the operating system installs a "smart switch" that cuts off the phone's power supply when water is detected.
