Apple has announced several new hardware products this week, including a new iPad mini and updated AirPods. To announce these two products, Tim Cook shared a pair of images that instantly became a model for memes.
Sylvania HomeKit Light Strip
The first image was shared on Monday. Cook unveiled a new iPad mini compatible Apple Pencil. This morning the same picture was shared, but with Cook wearing this time AirPods and drawing the AirPods case on the iPad mini. It's at this moment that the fun has really started.
This is not the first time that Apple triggers a viral meme on Twitter. During the holidays in December, the "AirPods for Christmas" have grown: users have called the AirPod symbol of desire. As you can imagine, this same AirPods "I do not speak broken" also found the way to this same iPad Twitter:

YouTuber Brands Brownlee took the opportunity to make fun of the AirPower charging mat, which has not been released yet. The popular account Jony Ive Parody took a similar approach to capitalize on the same.

Another pair of Twitter users imagined that Cook was using the Apple pencil to write his love for Samsung. Another is laughing at the too big volume indicator on iOS.

Tim Cook's Twitter account is a good source of humor recently. Earlier this month, President Trump made the mistake of calling Cook "Tim Apple" at a meeting. Cook reacted, however, by changing his Tim Cook Twitter posting name to "Tim ". Naturally, "Tim Apple" was used in the latest format even for iPad today:
