The rogue instructions said to 'charge' the iPhone for 60 second at watts or 70 seconds at watts, while warning, 'Do no wave-charge for over seconds'. The hoax was taken seriously by enough people for the Los Angeles Police Department to issue a warning. Gullible iPhone users found their phones erupted into flames or began to crack and smoke, and took to social media to warn others.
Apple's iOS Support is frantically tweeting warnings to their customers while trying to keep up with Twitter trolls who continue to report Wave as an effective phone charging method. The hoax is not the first prank to be played by 4-Chan, who previously convinced many iPhone users that the iOS7 update would make their mobile phones waterproof.
