Apple announced the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro series on Tuesday – and, as expected, the new launches received the traditional meme treatment on social media. There are four new iPhone 13 models corresponding to last year’s iPhone 12 lineup: the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. However, Apple did not opt for a radical redesign for their iPhone 13 series, and Twitter users were hard pressed to find any immediate difference between the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13. On social media, this became a rallying point for meme-makers who created hilarious posts by juxtaposing nearly-identical images to compare the new Apple iPhone with its previous iteration.
Take a look at some of the funniest iPhone 12 vs iPhone 13 memes that have flooded Twitter:
