iPhone X Parody Hilariously Mocks How Completely Unnecessary The New Functions Are
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, you’ll be well aware of the fact that tech supergiant and perennial tax evader, Apple, has launched the next two mobiles in its iPhone catalogue.
I’m a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to these kind of things, and in all honesty, spunking the best part of a thousand pound on a phone that has a few barely noticeable improvements on something I already have, isn’t really that appealing to me.
Apparently though, the announcement of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X is actually pretty big news that quite a lot of people care about.
As has become customary with these announcements, they’re usually unveiled as part of an over-the-top convention with some millionaire dressed suspiciously ordinary, telling us how his latest golden egg laying goose is going to revolutionise the world.
Forgive me, but I’m just not that excited by it.
Evidently, some people in the world as equally as indifferent to the news as I am, but instead of moaning about it in an article, they’ve made a much wittier parody video that you can check out below.
The parody pokes fun at a number of upgrades set to feature on the newest iPhones, honing in on the fact it’s essentially just a glorified $1000 emoji machine.
‘This is what Steve would have wanted’ the narrator sarcastically quips, and it does make you wonder what the iPhone’s brainchild would make of how his technology was being put to use.
The video also makes fun of the fact that hardly anyone will be able to afford the phone, and that actually, most of the new features on it are pretty unnecessary.
For example, who needs facial recognition to get into their phone? I’d make the argument you don’t even need thumb recognition. It’s like Apple include certain features just because they can rather than because it will actually improve the phone’s usability.
According to the video, catfishing will become easier for a whole new generation and hardly anyone will use it to play games.
Lastly, it highlights the fact that for the price of an iPhone X, one could purchase a good laptop or 50 U2 albums.
I never thought I’d say this, but give me 50 Bono’s any day of the week.
