Even the Apple founder’s daughter was left wondering what the differences between the iPhone 14 and 13 were.
Apple fans can now pre-order the much coveted iPhone 14 on Friday, September 9, after the company officially unveiled it during Wednesday’s “Far Out” event in Cupertino, California. But like thousands of people on the internet, one person was left to wonder what groundbreaking innovation Apple has made in the 14th iteration of the iconic iPhone: Steve Jobs’ daughter, Eve.
The 23-year-old model and equestrian took to Instagram Stories to share a meme originally posted by Wall Street Memes, which showed a photo of a smiling middle-aged man proudly presenting a gifted checked shirt, which was exactly like the one he was wearing.
“Me upgrading from iPhone 13 to iPhone 14 after Apple’s announcement today,” the meme said, as per the New York Post. But Jobs’ daughter wasn’t the only one sharing memes, as 9GAG had even compiled some of the best memes coming out after the “Far Out” Apple event this week.

Jobs’ daughter, whose modeling career is turning out to be a success with her recent addition to DNA Model Management, owns an iPhone and had once mused about how it reminded her of her father. Newsweek reported that the model told Vanity Fair that the iPhone was “a beautiful reminder for me every day…It really is. It makes me feel warm.”
But the reception to the iPhone 14 was rather not as warm. Many people on the internet took to social media to point out the minor changes and lack of innovation of the latest iteration of the iPhone. In fact, Vice‘s Edward Ongweso Jr. wrote on Friday, “If you held a gun to my head, I couldn’t tell you the difference between any of the iPhones that have been released these past few years.”
Ongweso and other Apple critics have pointed out the brand’s nearly identical products and minor changes such as a shift in the camera location, the addition of one or more colors, and nothing else in terms of actual innovation. Some have attributed this decline in innovation to the loss of Jobs himself, who passed away on October 5, 2011, a day after the iPhone 4S was introduced.

For those who are interested, Apple’s iPhone 14 has some minor upgrades from its predecessor, which was released just a year ago. This year’s slate consists of the base iPhone 14, a slightly larger iPhone 14 Plus, and the more expensive and powerful iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, The Verge reported.
The iPhone 14 has a price tag of $799 for the 128GB, $899 for the 256GB, and $1,099 for the 512GB. Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Plus comes with an $899 price tag and similar price increases for the respective storage upgrades as well.
Note that the iPhone 14 range uses last year’s A15 bionic chipset but features a new 12-megapixel TrueDepth camera that provides autofocus. Apple reported that iPhone 14 users would enjoy a 49% improvement in low-light image quality and a twice as fast Night Mode. Check out the rest of the features in detail here.
