One of the newest rumors flying around the Internet is not only dumb and ridiculous, but is also responsible for making a great number of people destroy their shiny new iPhone 6 smartphones!
The rumor claims that the iPhone 6’s iOS 8 has a special feature called Wave. Wave is said to be a cutting-edge technology that can connect the smartphone with microwave frequencies via wi-fi. The hoax basically tells people to place their iPhones in the microwave, set the timer to a minute and a half and watch their newest tech toy explode like some messed up culinary recipe. But the most ridiculous part of this popular hoax has to be the fact that some people are actually buying this stuff!
That’s right! Even the fire service are warning Twitter users not to put their iPhones in the microwave, unless they want a visit from a team of firefighters. Talk about being stupid!
