The daughter of the late Steve Jobs has thrown some not-so-subtle shade at Apple’s new iPhone 14,
unveiled Wednesday at a product-launch event, dubbed Far Out, that showcased the device’s features along with other new and improved products from the company.
Following the launch, Eve Jobs, 23, shared a meme to her Instagram story showing the image of a man gleefully buying the same shirt that he is currently wearing,
with the caption “Me upgrading from iPhone 13 to iPhone 14 after Apple’s announcement today.”
The mocking meme shared by the former Apple CEO’s youngest child aligns with an opinion shared widely on social media—
that the company is offering an upgrade that is too similar to the previous model, yet still wants consumers to drop hundreds of dollars on it.
Users who buy the pro version of the new model will get the most advantages, including a 48 megapixel camera,
a faster A16 processor and a redesign of the notch at the top of the screen, in essence transforming it into an interface called the Dynamic Island.
It also features an “always-on display”, meaning notifications can be viewed even when the phone is locked.
The standard version has a new action mode feature to stabilize videos, a car-crash feature similar to the latest Apple Watch,
and satellite connectivity to allow users to send SOS messages in an emergency.
Consumers can also purchase a plus version of the phone with a larger, 6.7-inch display, but there’s no mini version available.
