Unless you’ve been living under a rock on a desert island with no internet access – and if you have, that’s a whole other story we’re going to need to talk about – you may have heard that Apple are releasing two new iPhones.
Pretty much nothing about the new update was a surprise, not least because rumours have been a-swirling for months now that the earphone jack as we knew it was in for the chop.
Predictably, Twitter is up in arms about the whole thing.
1. Twitter, telling it like it is since 2006.
“Im so glad the Iphone 7 doesn’t have a headphone jack.” – absolutely no one

2. Goodbye, Aux DJ career.

3. WHERE WERE YOU WHEN APPLE WERE BRAINSTORMING THIS?!
Thing is with these iPhone headphones. I’m the type of guy to forget I have them in and walk into the shower with them and get electrocuted

I already lost one of the wireless iPhone headphones and I didn’t even get them yet.

5. No aux = no car disco.
Honestly iPhone 7 looks alriiiiight, but how do you expect us to get turnt on the way to a party if we don’t have an aux…

6. Again, THIS is what we should be thinking about, Apple.
When you get the iPhone 7 you won’t be able to use ur headphones to catch your phone from falling 🙁

iPhone 7 is water resistant so your tears can flow over it when you lose the $160 wireless earphones.

8. What would Walkman think of these SHENANIGANS?
iPhone 6 for life I am NOT willing to part with my last form of a modern disc man with my aux jack absolutely not that is a big no no

11. Fair question.
But will the iPhone 7 have a Siri that can love me?

12. Talents will be WASTED.

13. Do you know what’ll be worse than losing two earbuds? Losing one earbud.
Has anyone seen my iPhone 7 earbuds?! Might as well start looking for them before I lose them

14. INNOVATIVE THINKING. Need.
Y’all think the iPhone 7 will have “find my earbuds” as an app?

Real question: how will kids use iPhone 7s? Are there even tinier, more loseable, more courageous earbuds for them?
— emily nussbaum (@emilynussbaum) September 7, 2016
18. Yeah, we’re getting an extra camera too, by the way. Selfie’s be LIT.

Tim Cook mumbling in his sleep about wanting to jack off the new iPhone was misinterpreted as a design request

20. Ears already bleeding, tbh.
£159 for iPhone 7 headphones? I’m due to go back to playing “Gash by the hour” out loud on the back of the bus like it’s ’06

21. It just looks so SLEEK, like a DOLPHIN.
I don’t like the whole earphone airpod situation that iPhone 7 has but I’m prob still gonna buy it bc I’m a slave to capitalism
— denise (@dakneees) September 7, 2016
22. WAIT. We have a voice of reason.
If y’all don’t stfu about not being able to use the aux cord with the iPhone 7. It come with the adaptor pic.twitter.com/O3qP6ej1Pg

RIP Aux Cord. You will forever live on in our hearts.
