iPhone 6 will not charge in microwave

An Internet hoax convinced some people their new iPhone 6 could be charged in the microwave.

Now pictures of burnt phones and exploding mircrowaves are showing up on social media.

The ‘prank’ originated on 4Chan and promises that the iPhone 6 has a new function called ‘Apple Wave’ which is an automatic function that will convert microwaves into energy and recharge the phone’s batteries. If that sound familiar, it’s because the same hoax was perpetrated a few years back and people apparently did fall for it.

Of course anyone with a knowledge of basic physics will know that this isn’t possible and at best you’ll end up with a charred, broke, iPhone 6. At worst it could blow up your microwave.

So don’t fall for online hoaxes everyone, the only way to charge your iPhone is to actually plug it in in the same way that you’e had to do for years.
