Apple Air Sleeve: A Joke Product Designed to Prevent Overheating
Phones Canada Team
Despite the release of iOS 17.0.3 to address overheating issues on the iPhone 15 series, Apple has surprised users with a new product: the Apple Air Sleeve. This innovative sleeve is designed to prevent users from burning their hands while using their new iPhone. Made from cutting-edge corrugated cellulose fiber, commonly known as cardboard, the Apple Air Sleeve seamlessly pairs with your iPhone and even features the iconic Apple logo. However, with a price tag of $249.99, it’s important to note that this product is meant to be a joke.
The Apple Air Sleeve was actually created for a skit on the Late Show hosted by Stephen Colbert. Apple has often been parodied by famous late-night hosts, including Conan O’Brien, who used Apple announcements as a source of entertainment. As an example, we have included a fake ad created by Team Coco mocking the announcement of the Retina Display on the latest iPad back in 2012.
Similarly, Conan O’Brien broadcasted a fake ad in 2015 when it was discovered that wrist tattoos could interfere with the Apple Watch’s sensors. The ad showcased Apple Watch Hands, a realistic-looking fake arm and hand without any tattoos, allowing users to wear the Apple Watch without any interference. It humorously highlighted that the device utilized a titanium rod, predating the use of titanium in iPhones by eight years. And the price? A mere $499.
These jokes and parodies often target Apple because of the widespread popularity of its devices. Everyone knows what an iPhone and iPad are, making them easily recognizable in comedic sketches. For those who don’t follow the latest tech news, late-night hosts typically provide some background information to ensure viewers understand the humor. However, if you regularly visit the Phones Canada blog, you’re already ahead of the curve!
