Apple debuted the iPhone X yesterday and Apple fanatics worldwide collectively soiled themselves upon finding out the new iPhone contains features Android users have had forever. This might sound like I’m a salty Android user, but I’m not. I’ve been deeply entrenched in the Cult of Apple ever since I got my first iPhone (I think it was an iPhone 3) after I had purchased a Gen-1 Android phone and fucking hated it through and through.
I’m sure a lot has changed since then and I probably wouldn’t even recognize the Android OS at this point, but I’d also blindly argue that iOS 11 is better than whatever Salted Caramely Deez Nuts Crunch Android OS is out at this point without even knowing the facts because like I said before, I got sucked into the Cult of Apple years ago.
Will I be buying the new iPhone X at a starting point of at least $1,000? Probably, yes. Am I happy about it? No, not really. Working in editorial, I definitely use my phone more than the average iPhone user. I’m spending most of my day responding to trolls on Twitter. One of the things I’m most excited for is the wireless charging, and it appears as if other websites are stoked too because I’m already seeing articles about the ‘Best Wireless Chargers For iPhone 8‘ even though it was announced just a few hours ago.
At the end of the day, I do think it’s fair to call this a $1,000 meme machine because I found myself thinking the other day that I need a personal assistant to go through all the photos on my iPhone and delete the (literally) thousands of memes I’ve had on there over the years to share on the BroBible Instagram.
