The Irony of iPhones


Those that can afford it do not really use half of its functions. Those that can really maximize the functions cannot really afford it.

Every year, there is an upgrade from the company. iPhone 14 is on the way. A regular user will also feel outdated until he or she upgrades to the latest.

The difference between the previous and the latest iPhone is usually an addition of one extra camera or repackaging. Very soon, the entire back of the phone will be covered with cameras.

The phone is expensive, not because of what it can do but because of the name it has. It is like a confraternity; people just want to feel belong.

People buy iPhones claiming it is because of the camera quality. yet, anytime they really want to take real pictures, they abandon their phones and go to the studio.

Interestingly, at the studio, the camera that is used is sometimes cheaper than the latest iPhone on the market.

Last but not the least, if you are a lady between the ages of 16 to 30 and you bought an iPhone 13 with your money gotten from a job you genuinely laboured for, can we see your hands up?

In the words of Black Sherif in the song Kwaku the Traveller. Can we confidently say, “No hands???”
