Following pictures on social media of stateless and desperate families with some of the seven billion mobile phones in the world, Apple has today released details of its new iPhone.
A spokesperson for the company said “We were sitting in oxygen pods in our Cupertino office when we saw the pictures of refugees with their smartphones, and we were as disgusted and confused as anyone. They were taking selfies on a beach, but something obviously wasn’t right. They were using the rear camera. Then someone spoke up – ‘it doesn’t have a front facer’. It didn’t even have a front facer. One of the junior marketing guys actually vomited. We knew we had to do something.”
Head of marketing Andre Cooper said, “We are all doing what we can to ease this global crisis. Some people are hosting refugees, others are petitioning for a change in policy. We are bringing to market a next-generation smartphone featuring a 12 megapixel camera with retina flash. We are making it accessible to anyone in the world. Anyone with $1,000.” He then flashed the peace sign and added, “Think different”.
