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.

Google steps inside Apple’s home with updated Google Search app
The launch of Apple’s own Maps app was an effort to get people to use a new native iOS mapping app rather than the Google-based map tool.
Now, Google is rolling out a new feature - Google Now – to iPhones and iPads with the latest update to the Google Search app.
With this move, Google is making itself comfy inside everyone’s iOS device.
Heck – the app is so convenient and it’ll feel so comfortable that Google could even be putting up its feet on the coffee table in Apple’s mobile homes.

Review: iPhone 5 takes conservative step forward
The most noticeable thing you’ll spot with the iPhone 5 is that it’s slightly longer, sporting a 4-inch screen that’s larger only in length. It's not quite up there with the big 4.3 and 4.8-inch touchscreens on Android devices.
Physically, the handset is only about 4 mm longer, and it’s still the same width. Otherwise, the 5 is lighter and thinner than the 4S.
Popular app rates a person's ugly factor, bullying experts concerned
Ugly Meter works by taking a picture of your face, and then scanning it for certain facial features. A green bar glides across the face, drawing polymetric shapes surrounding a person’s facial structure.
The app then produces a score out of ten on the “Ugly Meter.” And with this app, you’ll want to score like you do with golf: the lower the score, the better.
