Taking digs at Apple has been a part of the staple diet at Samsung. Be it removal of charger, headphone jack, the notch — the list is quite an elaborate one. However, it looks like this Samsung has taken a dig at the late Steve Jobs. Samsung has an app — iTest — that turns the iPhone’s home screen into that of a Samsung Galaxy phone. In that app’s description, Samsung has mocked Jobs and his clothing style. “Samsung users are all unique and they like their phone to be unique too. No turtleneck wearer should dictate how your phone looks,” a part of the description reads.
Jobs, who changed Apple’s fortunes, was famous for wearing a black turtleneck at jeans. At every Apple event, he was seen in the same attire which had become his signature style statement. Jobs passed away in 2011 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
Samsung and Apple have had a huge history of fighting it out over patents, legal battles and more. Apple had accused Samsung of “blatantly copying the iPhone” in 2011 and the matter went to court. The case went on for seven years and both companies settled but only Apple was awarded $539 million.
Samsung has had the knack of making fun of Apple products a lot in the past. When the iPhone 12 series was launched, Samsung promptly made fun of Apple not giving a charger with the phone. It’s a different matter that Samsung didn’t waste time in following suit and has now stopped giving chargers with its premium phones. Its most recent — and most expensive — phone the Galaxy Fold 3 also doesn’t come with a charger.
