Steve Jobs’ daughter says new iPhone 14 is the same as older model

The new iPhone will be available from September 16

Eve Jobs, daughter of the late Steve Jobs, has made her feelings pretty clear about the new iPhone – you probably don’t need it.

The 24-year-old mocked the latest iteration of the smartphone with an internet meme on Wednesday, as the company released further details on the phone’s capabilities.

Together with a photo of a middle-aged man buying exactly the same shirt as the one he was wearing, the Stanford graduate, reposted a meme from the WallStBets account reading: “Me upgrading from iPhone 13 to iPhone 14 after Apple’s announcement today.”

Eve’s jibe went down well with commenters, who largely agreed that the phone hasn’t been upgraded much at all. It is due for release on September 16.

“Bro they just be releasing the same thing over and over again,” one commenter wrote.

Earlier Wednesday, Apple gave fresh details about the iPhone 14 which has satellite connectivity that will let users send satellite SOS messages if they’re caught in an emergency without service, from November.

The phone was the closing item in Apple CEO Tim Cook’s annual product event that also revealed the Apple Watch Ultra designed specifically for “extreme athletes.”

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, which boasts a 6.7-inch screen, come in five colours. iPhone 14 starts at $1399 and will go up to $1,899. Preorders start September 9.

iPhone 14 will be available on September 16 and iPhone 14 Plus releases October 7.

Apple said the smartphone has an “amazing new camera system” with an upgraded 12 megapixel main camera that features a sensor larger than the smartphone’s predecessor.

Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said in a statement: “Both phones have a powerful new Main camera with a huge leap in low-light performance, advanced connectivity capabilities with 5G and eSIM, and the incredible performance of A15 Bionic, which helps enable even better battery life. All of this, tightly integrated with iOS 16, makes iPhone more essential than ever.”

The camera is also almost twice as good in low-light capture and also features a new TrueDepth for the front-facing camera that automatically focuses on objects and people within the frame, along with the Ultra Wide camera that captures more of the scene.
