Gadget aficionados around the world watched Apple’s Time Flies event on Tuesday in hopes of hearing about an iPhone 12 but were disappointed. Soon social media was full of questions about why the iPhone 12 wasn’t mentioned, and there were memes and jokes about the notable exclusion.
In place of a new phone, the tech giant unveiled its latest watch models and an updated line of mid-range, low-cost iPads. The company announced the launch of a Watch SE, Watch Series 6, iPad Air, 8th generation iPad, and a few new services.
With no new phone mentioned, many joked that they had already sold their previous iPhones in hopes of buying a new one. Many also made fun of the company for not meeting popular demand.

In contrast to Apple’s other mega-events, this was very different, as CEO Tim Cook spoke from the glass corridors of Apple Park and not from the Steve Jobs Theater. He was seen walking across the glass panels of the stunning Apple headquarters and talking to the camera.
Although the Apple CEO hit a new high in terms of performance, he didn’t make reference to the health of the company and went straight to the details of the new watch.
