Joan Rivers is Getting an iPhone 6! (Despite The Fact That She Died Two Weeks Ago)

File this one under "most WTF Apple-related news since they crammed that U2 album down our throats:"

As you've probably heard, comedy legend Joan Rivers died earlier this month after complications from a routine surgical procedure.

But today - just over two weeks from the day that Rivers passed away - a timely post mysteriously popped up on her Facebook page.

Many fans were shocked - and no doubt a little disturbed - when Rivers' still-active account posted a photo of a an iPhone 4 along with a status update reading:

"This badass is being replaced by an iPhone 6 (not the fat one). I got this one in 2010, and after 4 years, my only complaint is that apps are designed for bigger screens and the battery is getting tired. Never had a case for it, since it was beautiful on its own."

Naturally, the post raised a number of interesting questions, such as: How is Joan Rivers updating her Facebook from beyond the grave? and, How the hell did she make her phone last four years without a case?!

We may never have an answer to the latter query, but as for the otherworldly post - it's probably just a case of Joan's team having scheduled a status update to go up on the date of the phone's release, and forgetting to cancel it. 

It's especially weird since the iPhone 6 wasn't even announced until after Rivers had passed, but in any event, we're sure she would've gotten a kick out of the fact that she shocked the world and made us laugh one last time.
