Steve Jobs' daughter rips into new iPhone 14 and claims it's the same as the old model
| Last updated
Yesterday (Wednesday 7 September), Apple unveiled its new iPhone 14 range, with the regular model sporting a 6.1 inch screen and there's a 6.7 inch size for the Plus, making it as large as Apple's largest phone - the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
New features include an 'always on' display which shows off the time and notifications while dormant, along with a longer battery life.
But it seems the new bells and whistles aren’t enough to fool some people – even Eve Jobs, the daughter of the late Apple co-founder Steve and his wife Laurene Powell, who reacted to the news on Instagram.
Eve (yep, just let that sink in for a second) shared a meme on her Stories, which showed a middle-aged man buying the same shirt as the one he is wearing, with a caption saying: “Me upgrading from iPhone 13 to iPhone 14 after Apple's announcement today.”
And it seems many others agree with her shade, with one person tweeting: “How are the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 not the exact same phone?”
Someone else said: “The iPhone 14 is just 13 and 12. When Samsung has phone that are flipping and folding, iPhone just does the same stuff. What a disappointment.”

A third wrote: “iPhone 14 and 14 max is exactly the same phone as 13 and 13 pro max.”
A fourth added: “Technically, all iPhone 13 users have been using iPhone 14 even before it was released #same.”
The iPhone 14 was unveiled at yesterday's Apple Event, where the tech giant claimed that the new phone is more powerful that anything its competitors can match, with a five core GPU and a six core CPU.
The regular model will cost you $799 (£849 in the UK), while the Plus model will be priced at $899 (£949 in the UK) - although some customers will be able to get discounts if they trade in old models.
The new phone comes with a new 12 megapixel main camera, while the front facing camera boasts the same levels of definition.
Apple said it has also boosted performance for low-light photos compared to the iPhone 13 range, as well as introducing a slew of new features to protect the phone from being broken or stolen.
The iPhone 14 is set to hit shelves on 16 September, while the 14 Plus is due to be launched on 7 October.
