If there’s any assure in Apple occasions, it is that the web will all the time stroll away with meme.
This year’s “Spring Loaded” event is no exception, and amongst thrilling releases just like the Bluetooth-tracking AirTag, a brand new iPad Professional, and extra importantly, iMacs in an array of new colors, Apple additionally served us with one more meme.
Apple introduced that the brand new iPad Professional wouldn’t solely have 5G connectivity, but additionally the powerful M1 chip that makes it (according to Apple, at least) 75 times more powerful than the first generation iPad.
The announcement got here by way of a spy thriller-like video wherein the primary character breaks into the Apple campus, navigates its convoluted air flow system, and narrowly avoids falling into an online of lasers. (As a result of apparently Apple’s campus is tricked out with a laser alarm system particularly to guard its room filled with MacBooks.) Moderately than commit some nice heist, our protagonist sneaks into one other room, and inserts the M1 chip he took from the MacBook into the iPad. Then he pulls off his face, and shock! This agent is definitely Apple CEO Tim Prepare dinner.
I personally walked away from this video with means too many questions left unanswered. Why wasn’t there an alarm system within the iPad room? Why is Apple CEO Tim Prepare dinner breaking into his personal campus? Does he not have the keys to simply use the entrance entrance?
Twitter, then again, couldn’t recover from this screenshot of Tim grinning down upon his newly souped-up iPad Professional. It is ripe for response memes.
Clearly, we needed to leap on the bandwagon too.
