iOS 7 doesn’t make your iPhone waterproof, but the BeachBuoy does

Don’t be fooled by the recent fake ad suggesting that the iOS 7 software update will magically turn your iPhone into a water baby.

Unfortunately for them, plenty of gullible people believed a hoax “advertisement” that appeared online this week, suggesting that iOS 7 makes your iPhone waterproof, and ended up permanently damaging their iPhones by testing the theory out.

“Update to iOS 7 and become waterproof”, the poster read.

“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,” it went on to say.

The poster was shared all over the social networks, and resulted in many people taking its word for gospel and dunking their precious iPhones in water.

We would advise that you never place your iPhone in water. That is to say, never do it without an iPhone 5S / 5C waterproof case. The BeachBuoy waterproof case by Proporta allows you to use your smartphone while truly protecting it in up to 5 metres of water.
