iPhones destroyed after a fake Waterproof advert on the Internet.

A fake advert about the new iOS7 led to the destruction of several iPhones. The advert, claimed that the new iOS7 made the device waterproof.

The Poster read:

“Update to iOS7 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,"
 After being shared on several social network sites, this advert made curious people, probably not knowing anything about technology to get fooled and try it out. It is then that such iPhone users had gone mad, wasting an iPhone, probably bought over the weekend during its launch.

Adding a note for future purposes: Software Updating is Never going to make your phone Waterproof or shockproof or any other –proof. It all depends on the hardware and casing it is built.
