You may have heard about this rumor going around or you may have seen it on social media. Don’t believe the hype folks. If you microwave your iPhone 6 you will get nothing more than this:

As you might recall, last year 4chan tried to convince everyone that iOS 7 would make your iPhone waterproof. (Reminder: iOS 7 did not make your iPhone waterproof.)

This week 4chan decided to come up with a follow-up for iOS 8, Apple Wave Technology. Their fake write up for Apple Wave describes it as an interface that uses radio-baseband to synchronize with microwave frequencies that charge your phone.

It’s all gibberish but they decided to spam social media with the announcement. And it looks like more than a few people either fell for it or are playing along. With 4chan it’s often hard to tell who is in on the joke and who isn’t.

But it doesn’t matter, these people are lying, don’t microwave your phone folks. It always amazes me what the power of Social Media can do. Watch your local news tomorrow and see how many new iPhone users blew up their kitchens while trying this. (iphone 6 related)
