No, iOS 8 doesn’t give your phone the microwave charging abilities
After iOS 8 was released, a hoax started circulating in Twitter and other social media networks about a new feature called Wave, which purportedly allowed your iOS 8 device to be charged using any household microwave. The more astute among you are already thinking hoax a second after reading that sentence, but there are apparently people out there that believe anything they see on the internet.
If it’s not obvious yet, a software update won’t magically give your iDevice the ability to defy the laws and physics and thermodynamics, and will destroy it. Let us make it perfectly clear: putting your iDevice inside a microwave and turning it on will destroy it. Just don’t do it.
USE WAVE THEY SAID. IT’LL CHARGE YOUR IPHONE IN THE MICROWAVE THEY SAID. ???????????????? pic.twitter.com/DJspCShhJq
