Aiming to ace the selfie game, Apple on Tuesday announced the all-new iPhone 11 with the all-new feature called Slofie. As weird as the term Slofie may sound to you, but did you wonder what does it mean or what is it all about? To answer the question, Slofie, as the name suggests is Apple's new selfie on slo-mo feature introduced with the iPhone 11. Using slofie, Apple wants you to capture slow-motion selfies (as if people's weren't already taking them enough). Hence, it's called a slofie (slow-motion selfie). During their annual event on Tuesday, Apple introduced three new phone- iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max with the three focusing primarily on the camera. All three new iPhones offer a slow-motion selfie feature.
It didn't take long for Twitterati to have a field day over the term coined by Apple. The internet was filled with some really rib-tickling gifs and reactions almost as soon as it was uttered. One Twitter user shared a still of Mr Bean staring at something and wrote, "Me if I hear anyone ask for a "Slofie". Meanwhile, another Twitter user called it the "worst word of 2019". While posting a picture of a Koala bear, who is known to be lazy, another Twitter user wrote, "Can this be the thing instead...?"
I’m already calling “slofie” the worst word of 2019 #AppleEvent— Federico Viticci (@viticci) September 10, 2019
"Slofies nooo Slofiessssss," wrote a user taking a jibe at the word.
Sharing a gif of a sloth bear, one Twitter user exchanged slofie with slothie as they went on writing, "Elsie is ready for her first #slofie, which also qualifies as a #slothie."
Apple's annual event took place at the Steve Jobs Theatre in Cupertino city, California. The event witnessed the launch of scores of new devices including the iPhone 11 smartphone, the next-gen Apple Watch, 7th gen iPad, Apple Arcade and Apple TV+.
