Today, we need to apologize if this posting has caused you to lose faith in humanity. However, it’s just too ridiculous not to share. A number of Apple ads were photoshopped to look extremely authentic and fooled some less tech-savvy folks into thinking that updating to iOS 7 would make the devices waterproof. Specifically, The faux ads claim that updating devices with the operating system installs a “smart switch” that cuts off the phone’s power supply when water is detected.
Reddit claims that the posts (and yes there are a number of them) came from 4Chan. And it’s a very strong possibility.
For the record, updating an OS will not do this. So don’t be that guy.
