When Apple launched the new iPhone 15 at the “Wanderlust Event” in Cupertino, California, they showed how Apple had a zero carbon impact on the environment through an intriguing ad. However, shortly after, the company came under fire on X after handing out plastic-wrapped cookies to event attendees.
User X Nikias Molina took to the microblogging platform to share a photo of the plastic-wrapped cookies reading “Welcome to California.”
In the post’s caption, Molina wrote, “Apple gave us cookies at the event. They were so good.” (Also read: Apple offers ₹6,000 off iPhone 15 models. How to benefit?)
However, this tweet did not go down well with netizens, as people started pointing out Apple’s environmental impact advertisement.
Take a look at the tweet shared by Molina here:

Here’s what people are saying about this post:
One person joked: “Our best cookies yet. We used all-natural flour, butter and eggs. The plastic wrap is leftover from unsold iPhones. We can’t wait for you to take a bite. They will be available.” September 22 at your nearest bakery.”
A second added: “iCookie – available for pre-order from September 22. They ignored it during the keynote. But it’s real.”
“It would have been a nice touch if the packaging had said ‘Made in Cupertino’. Or, you know, made of biodegradable material or something,” posted a third.
A fourth chimed in: “Mother nature, a bombastic sideways glance. Is that plastic wrap?”
A fifth said: “Apple: Spend 10 minutes talking about the need to become eco-friendly. Apple also: distributes tons of cookies wrapped in plastic. »
