Fake ad making the rounds on social media claims you can charge your iPhone in a microwave

Are you familiar with Apple Wave, the revolutionary new charging feature that’s bundled with iOS 8? It uses microwave frequencies to charge your phone. All you need to do for a rapid recharge is place your iOS 8 device in a microwave for a minute and a half. Wait, what?

That’s the gist of a bogus iOS 8 ad currently making the rounds on social media. As Digital Trends points out, the ad originated from the 4chan message boards – the same group responsible for the iOS 7 waterproof ad last year.

While virtually nobody that reads this site would fall for such a thing, I’m sure most of us could think of at least a couple of people in our lives that might be gullible enough to give it a try.

And just so you can’t say I didn’t say so, don’t put your iDevice in the microwave.
