After several “sell your kidney jokes” that happened after the iPhone 7 launch, Twitter is back with a bang as Apple launched its newest models – iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X, along with new versions of the Apple Watch and Apple TV.
In its 10th-anniversary edition, iPhone X has no home button. Moreover, it has a ‘Face ID’ feature that becomes your new password. This latest smartphone iPhone X won’t come cheap, though. The device’s base unit with 64GB storage is expected to cost Rs 89,000 in India, while the 256GB version will cost Rs 1.02 lakh, making its the most expensive iPhone to date. Something the Twitter humour mills accepted with open arms.
Clearly, India is one of the most expensive places to buy the iPhone X, with people paying more than those living in the US or Hong Kong for the base unit. But as you wait for those to become available, we browsed through the micro-blogging site – actually laughing our way through, TBH – and came up with a list of our favourite memes on the latest iPhones. Check them out:
So the iPhone X will unlock with facial recognition instead of home button. I feel sorry for iPhone X already. pic.twitter.com/mCRn1gYLUT
