Apple Inc's CEO Tim Cook unveiled the latest iPhone 13 at the Apple Event on Tuesday. While Cook lauded the iPhone 13's 'top-of-the-line upgrades' that set it apart from its predecessor, the iPhone 12, iPhone users couldn't help notice that both versions are pretty much the same, save a few minor tweaks. Fans of the brand have since been nursing their wounds by churning out quality memes on social media.
While the new iPhone comes with an A15 Bionic chip and offers better 5G connectivity, its physical appearance hasn't had a dramatic makeover to make it stand apart from the iPhone 12, or even from its much older ancestors. This not-so-surprising revelation made for great meme fodder.
Appearance wise, re-positioning the camera lens seems to be the only glaring change so far.
Of course, the brand has hordes of loyal customers willing to invest in a new Apple product at the drop of a hat. The internet doesn't exactly hold these loyalists in the highest esteem at the moment.
iPhone enthusiasts are willing to pay big bucks to get their hands on a phone that doesn't seem all too different from their last.
Another group of customers will be itching to buy the new iPhone as soon as possible — the tech savvy YouTubers dying to test the phone out.
While the internet's Apple purchasers are going through a frenzy, Android users apparently couldn't care less.
