Apple Announced The New iPhone And Everyone's Making The Same Joke
So, in case you’ve been living under a massive rock for the past 24 hours, you’re probably aware that Apple announced three new iPhone’s yesterday.
Tim Cook and his pals each took to the stage to explain the different Apple gadgets set to hit the shelves in the coming months – from an impressive new Apple Watch to a super high definition Apple TV.
Of course, what people were really interested in was the new iPhone, which, according to circulating rumours, would have some exciting new changes. No Home button! Facial recognition! Animated emoji’s! A contouring camera!
And whilst it can’t be denied that Apple delivered on all fronts, the fact that we’ve now been left with not one but three new iPhone’s, all priced up to a thousand pounds, has many people feeling conflicted.
Apple announced the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8s and then (one more thing …) the iPhone X – which is apparently meant to be pronounced out loud as the iPhone 10.
Many people took to social media with their questions – because, surely enough, there were a lot. What on earth happened to the iPhone 9? Who would ever spend their time playing any of those games? Why was that iPhone X demonstration so darn cringe-worthy?
As always, the good people of Twitter posted their reactions to the whole ordeal, and needless to say, they are absolutely hilarious. Check them out below:
First of all, most people couldn’t help but think of Arya Stark and the faceless men when the facial recognition feature was announced in the iPhone X:

And everyone else simply couldn’t understand how they’d be able to afford the device, let alone make it work – or keep it from breaking:

'You're mine!' he cried, staring menacingly, then grinning manically, then frowning angrily . . but his iPhone X still didn't recognise him.

FACT. The iPhone X got its name when a technician emailed his boss “nearly finished new iPhone”, accidentally added a kiss and styled it out
