The Apple event on Tuesday (September 12) had some interesting moments. There was a tribute to Steve Jobs, some excruciating self-glorification, the renaming of Apple Stores to “Apple Town Squares,” and the release of two new iPhone models (with heart-stopping price tags)! It certainly makes for some pretty handy material for September’s meme blast!
Big news in the Apple world! At the unveiling of Apple’s new iPhones on Tuesday (September 12), Apple announced they were shaking a few things up. For example, the Apple stores will be getting a new name! Now, when you visit an Apple Store to repair your broken phone, you’re actually going to a “Town Square.” And the new iPhones will make your current iPhone look like an old school Nokia —only you’d wish it was that sturdy! The new iPhone 8 and the iPhone X are packed with so many dizzying features that the Internet is responding to it in the best way it can: iPhone X memes! Did we mention that the iPhone X price starts at a whopping $999? Ouch!
The iPhone 8 was old two minutes after its reveal when the iPhone X, or iPhone 10 (what happened to iPhone 9?) was unveiled. It’s equipped with Face ID technology, which means you only need your face to unlock your fancy new iPhone! Apple proclaimed they created lifelike human masks to test out the Face ID, and added a feature that lets you turn your face into a popular talking emoji. Sounds like Apple took a trip to Westeros and had an internship with the Many-Faced God! With so much going on in one phone, the Internet is going to digest this Apple announcement and regurgitate it into meme greatness. Let’s face it, the only thing more affordable than a thousand dollar iPhone are these priceless iPhone X memes!
