Cupertino, CA – Apple unveiled their latest iPhone model with a groundbreaking AI feature designed to boost users’ self-esteem.
The new technology called iBoost is a built-in self-esteem booster that automatically detects when the user is feeling down and sends them a personalized compliment to lift their spirits.
“We wanted to create a phone that not only looks good, but makes you feel good too,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook. “With the iBoost, you’ll never have to worry about feeling insecure or unappreciated again.”
The iBoost is an AI agent that works by monitoring the user’s social media activity, emails, and text messages, and uses advanced algorithms to analyze their tone and mood. If the iBoost detects that the user is feeling down or insecure, it sends them a personalized compliment to help boost their confidence.
For example, if the user posts a selfie on Instagram with the caption “feeling ugly today,” the iBoost will automatically respond with a message like “You’re beautiful just the way you are!” or “Don’t listen to the haters, you look amazing!”
According to Apple, the iBoost is designed to be a “virtual cheerleader” for users, providing them with constant encouragement and validation. The AI will also contact bot farms to like users’ social media posts when necessary to boost confidence.
“Research has shown that positive feedback can have a significant impact on our mental health and well-being, and that iPhone users need to be told that they are great constantly,” said Apple’s head of product design. “With the iBoost, we’re harnessing the power of technology to help people feel better about themselves.”
However, not everyone is convinced that the iBoost is a good idea. Critics have raised concerns about the potential for the iBoost to create a false sense of self-esteem and dependency on technology.
“This is just another example of technology trying to replace human interaction and validation,” said psychologist Dr. Lisa Diamond. “True self-esteem comes from within or from not having to buy a new phone every year, not from a computer algorithm.”
Despite the criticism, Apple remains optimistic about the iBoost’s potential to help people feel better about themselves.
“We believe that the iBoost is going to change the way people think about their phones,” said Cook. “It’s not just a device, it’s a friend that’s always there to support you, not that you don’t have friends who love you.”
