Facebook, Twitter users fall for fake Apple ad claiming iOS 7 makes an iPhone waterproof
That is anything far from the truth, however.
While the software will make your iPhone or iPad feel like an entirely new device, it can't possibly seal off the headphone jack, lighting connector and speaker holes.
That, unfortunately, hasn't stopped countless people from dipping their Apple phones and tablets in water to test out the claims, only to turn their iPhones into iBricks.
That's like saying the new BMW M3 sports car has an “undo button” to undo car crashes. It's simply not possible.
Furthermore, the fake ad says “Waterproofing covered by Apple's warranty policy.” That, as well, isn't true. You can see the full ad here via DailyTechWhip.com
Users, who unfortunately fell for the hoax, started posting their misfortunes.
Twitter user @Tdermot wrote “Whoever said iOS7 was waterproof **** you.”
Meanwhile, @SaraJoWalls tweeted “Anyone have a iPhone for sale? Someone told me iOS7 was waterproof and obviously mine wasn't...”
The new mobile operating system, iOS 7, is a free upgrade and brings several drastic improvements to Apple's iPhone and iPad. Things look better, it's easier to access commonly-used settings like the WiFi switch, etc.
If you actually want a phone that is waterproof, then you should get the new Sony Xperia Z1. It's running Android, which has come a long way in recent years, and it can survive a swim.- Maurice Cacho, MSN Tech & Gadgets
