NEWS NUTS: Apple's iOS 7 does NOT make phones waterproof: Fake advert tricks users into breaking their handsets

A fake advert claiming Apple's new iOS 7 software makes iPhones and iPads waterproof is reported to have duped some users into breaking their devices by submerging them in water.

The advert appeared on social networks, including Facebook and Twitter, earlier this week and is rumoured to have originated from online forum 4Chan.

The advert shows an iPad and an iPhone 5S covered in water droplets, with the tagline: 'a smart-switch will shut off the phone's power supply and corresponding components to prevent and damage to your iPhone's delicate circuitry'.
