The new iPhone is here! You know that, everyone knows it. What’s better than the new iPhone, though? Probably the brilliant tweets from Android aficionados and those who hate Apple for some reason. As an Android user myself, and a sales associate for a high street phone shop, you’d think I’d care a lot more.
Unfortunately, I don’t. However, it’s always funny to laugh at those who care a little bit too much. I’ve put together the best Apple put-downs from people who loathe them.
Anyone remember the Nexus 4? No? Well, it was released in 2012. This bitter, yet on form Google+ user points out the amazing marketing skills of Apple – by showing how behind they are in the market, yet still able to entice millions to a “new” product.
What’s better than a consumer making fun of a colossal company like Apple? Corporate giants at war. I’m sure you’re aware of Ikea’s amazing parody of Apple’s advertising.
Watch it below.
Everyone loves Ellen DeGeneres, and I think we all love her a little bit more after this brilliant Tweet.
So excited for the Apple Watch. For centuries, we’ve checked the time by looking at our phones. Having it on your wrist? Genius. #AppleLive

Marketing is a powerful tool, and with power comes price. A company who can run off the back of another’s marketing campaign is intelligent and that’s exactly what Samsung did. During the launch of the iPhone, #galaxyfamily was trending worldwide, competing with the iPhone 6 hashtag. Why spend all the money on advertising, if you can run it off the back of another?
Samsung’s tweets were hilarious, following the live event and shooting down each new feature as it was announced at the event. Users worldwide also joined in on the tag – I’ve listed a few of the best one’s below.

After sifting through so many tweets about Apple, and how we should dislike them, I feel very angry. I’m not sure why.
