Fake Apple iOS 7 ad states iPhone is waterproof – and people fell for it


A fake Apple ad that has been posted on social networks claims the iOS 7 makes the phone waterpoof.

The ad looks similar to Apple’s ads promoting iOS 7 and the new iPhone 5S and 5C. The fake ad reads:

“Update to IOS 7 and become waterproof. In an emergency, a smart-switch will shut off the phone’s power supply and corresponding components to prevent any damage to your iPhone’s delicate circuitry.”

The fake ad is shown below:

Apparently, several people fell for the fake ad and expressed their outrage on Twitter and other social networks.
