Last month, Apple unveiled the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR, introducing a ton of memes around the phrase “iPhone Tennis” and “iPhone Excess.” Now Apple is trending again thanks to its new iPad and MacBook lineup, and you better believe that there’s a whole slew of tweets making fun of the products.

To give you a quick rundown, Apple (finally) announced a new MacBook Air, Mac mini, Pencil 2, iPhone XR-like 11 in. and 12.9 in. iPad Pro. All three hardware lines come with the most powerful processing capabilities from Apple to date, and the iPad Pro, in particular, stands out thanks to its enormous screen size, new Liquid Retina display, and advanced graphical processing capabilities. There’s no home button either, so just like the iPhone X, you’ll use the screen to navigate the tablet.

Apple fans were quickly blown away by the new MacBook Air.

Then there’s the resurrected Mac mini, which is impressive specification-wise, but much more expensive than its 2014 predecessor.

Twitter users poked fun at Apple’s obsession over with 100 percent recycled aluminum in its new Macs, too.

But all that pales in comparison to the iPad Pro reveal. Apple flexed on the competition this year, taking aim at everything from Microsoft to loose-leaf paper. Twitter noticed, to say the least.

And yes, you can use the new iPad Pro to charge your iPhone XS. You’ll need a USB-C to lightning cable of course, as iPad Pro uses the former, but who cares? The world’s most expensive power bank is about to hit the market, and we both know you already pre-ordered it.


But most of all, Apple jacked up the prices on everything this year. Maxing out the Mac mini is so astronomically high that it’s simply a luxury item, full stop. Twitter noticed, and users know their bank accounts are about to disappear.

But hey, you know what they say: an Apple fan and his money are easily parted.
