Someone thought it would be a great idea to take advantage of the gullible people of the world with the release of Apple's new iOS 8. And you guessed right... It worked!
The above image is what has caused people to destroy their phones. “Apple Wave,” claims to allow users to charge their new iPhone 6 by heating it in a microwave.
Note: This does NOT work!
People are taking to social media to show the results of popping their prized new iPhones in the microwave... #FacePalm
