Taeyeon (태연) has been gushing over her new purple iPhone 12. The 32-year-old singer had been seriously contemplating about Apple’s latest release and finally succumbed to it.
If you recall, the Girls’ Generation (SNSD) vocalist held an Instagram Live session recently to vent about her predicament after seeing that Apple had just debuted the brand new purple iPhone.
During the IG Live, Taeyeon got candid about her “frustration” by sharing that she has been suppressing the urge to get yet another mobile phone. However, the iPhone 12’s new purple colour was simply too tempting to resist. Fans were rather amused at her annoyance.
“The purple colour is out. I didn’t buy the iPhone 12 until now, and have been very patient about it. And all of a sudden, a purple one comes out? And it’s not even a Pro, it’s a mini,” said Taeyeon. “If a Pro had come out, then I probably would have changed it. Why now? Let’s say I had bought a different colour without having waited. Then, what was I supposed to do?”
If you’ve been following Taeyeon, then you’ll probably know that her favourite colour is purple. The K-pop star even opened a poll for fans to cast their votes on whether she should just throw caution to the wind and get the new purple iPhone 12.
Fast forward a week later, Taeyeon revealed that she had gotten the new gadget even though Apple might release a purple iPhone 13 in the near future. In the caption, the “Spark” hit-maker wrote, “Apple should be very happy that you guys won. Will there also be a purple iPhone 13 Pro? If not, it’s fine.”
To quote a fan, the singer can easily afford an iPhone in every colour. If you’re wondering what’s all the fuss about the new purple iPhone 12 – we break it down here.
