People tend to fall into two camps when it comes to technology: Apple users and others. We all have our preferences but Apple users are known for always striving to have the company’s newest products, even though they do release them quite often and the prices are pretty steep.
Apple users are buzzing this week because of the Apple event where the iPhone 13 was introduced. However, it was met with great disappointment as people couldn’t see why they should invest in the new phone which looked exactly the same as the previous model. But the bright side is that the internet has done its thing and we have the most entertaining memes poking fun at this release.
Hannu Luhtasela 5 days agoI’ve never understood why US people have huge obsession with Apple phones. Is overpriced product somekind of status symbol or what? Protective case seems like neverheard product, because they doesn’t highlight logo. Please, don’t take this personal, this is just person from old continent writing and wondering why are we living in a world of capitalism and everyone is ok with it.
Many of the memes were pointing out that the new iPhone looks exactly the same as the iPhone 12, which is the previous model and the only difference they could spot was that the camera lenses were distributed diagonally instead of being both on the same side.
People were joking that Apple is making millions and they don’t have to do anything, just convince the buyers that the product is totally new and better than ever. But there are actually some changes that were introduced.
For example, in the article presenting the new model, Apple claims that the biggest change is in the camera quality. They say that the new “technologies enable impressive new photo capabilities never before possible on iPhone, like macro photography on the new Ultra Wide camera and up to 2.2x improved low-light performance on the new Wide camera.”
The new iPhone will have a longer battery life by two and a half hours a day. The developers have also improved the performance to be even faster and the outside is “protected by the Ceramic Shield front cover, exclusive to iPhone and tougher than any smartphone glass.”
The Only Upgrade I Care About :p #appleevent
What is also nice is that some parts of the phone are made using recycled materials to minimize their impact to the environment. It is actually the company’s goal to reduce their negative impact on the environment to zero by 2030.
Even though Apple lists in detail all the changes and improvements, clients are not happy and think that they are being fooled into buying a new product that will not change their smartphone using experience.
For a long time now, people have been expressing their frustrations at how Apple will always find a way to lure out even more money from their customers. Phone accessories like earphones are not included in the package and the charger wires are not very durable, so they have to be changed regularly.
Not only do they have to spend a lot of money on accessories, the phones themselves can cost an arm and a leg. Many memes consisted of jokes saying that people are preparing to sell their kidneys so that they can afford the new iPhone model. The price for the iPhone 13 Pro starts at $999 before trade-in and for the iPhone Pro Max, it starts at $1099 before trade-in.
Are you an Apple user and are you excited for the iPhone release? Maybe you already have it? Do you agree with the memes that are saying that there are no differences between the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13? And do you think it is worth paying the price which is asked for the new model?
