Apple introduced the new lineup of iPhones at a virtual event broadcast on October 13. Apple launched iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max models. However, Apple announced that it will not be shipping out new phones with a power adapter or EarPods.
Apple’s decision to not include a charger with the phone sparked a meme fest on social media with many users trolling the brand’s decision.
Apple rival Samsung also took a not-so-subtle dig at Apple for not including a charger. Taking to its Facebook page, Samsung shared a picture of a black charger that is included with its lineup of Galaxy phones and wrote,
“Your #Galaxy does give you what you are looking for. From the most basic as a charger, to the best camera, battery, performance, memory and even 120Hz screen on a phone.”
Samsung’s post has garnered over one lakh reactions and more than 10,000 comments.
Some people also took a dig at Samsung. “Samsung first made fun of unavailability of the headphone jack and proceeded to remove it anyway, so is it the same scenario again,” wrote one user.
“Just gonna save this image for when you decide to do the same thing two years later or so…” said another.
This is not the first time that Samsung has taken a dig at Apple. In 2017, the smartphone maker mocked its rival with an ad titled ‘Growing Up’.
