Apple Owners Fooled by Waterproof iPhone Claims

 

Apple users have been duped into believing their products, including the latest iPhone, are waterproof once they have updated the new iOS7 Software.

The fake advert claimed that a "smart switch" cuts off the power supply to the phone when water is detected which "prevents damage to your iPhone's delicate circuitry".  This has fooled many people into doing things with their mobile device which they would never have dreamed of.  The advert which has fooled many people looks remarkably similar to an authentic Apple advertisement, with the same plain white background and minimalist font and style.

Unbeknown to the users, exposing their device to water has simply made their device useless.

Several years ago such false claims would have benn laughed away however with technology moving forward and manufacturers such as Sony launching new Smartphones which ARE waterproof, such as the Sony Xperia Z1, Sony Xperia Z and Sony Xperia Go these claims are more feasible.
