Oh gosh - I don't believe I'm actually reporting on this, but here we go: a fake Apple ad has been making its way around on social networks, pushing people to "update to iOS 7 to become waterproof."

The ad tries to 'sell' iOS 7 to you, in a salesman type of way, by stating: "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." Countless people fell for it, destroying their iPhones in the process. I can't help but laugh (please don't take offense if you're on of these people), but one angry person who thought a software update would make their iPhone waterproof said: "Ok whoever said IOS7 is waterproof GO F*** YOURSELF."

I do have a question for these iDiots: if you thought a software update would magically make your iPhone waterproof, can I have the same update for my car? Maybe I can firmware flash my car and have it 10x better on mileage. Maybe I could firmware flash myself and have the ability to fly? Apple fans, officially reaching a new low.
