The launch of the highly anticipated Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has left a lot of us unconvinced.
The new models are water and dust resistant, shinier (have a “mirror-like surface”) and comes in a few new colour options, including ‘matte black’.
But the biggest difference – that to be fair we were warned to expect – is that it has NO headphone jack. Instead Apple has developed a set of wireless headphones called AirPods, but it doesn’t help that these babies will set you a solid $159 dollars when available in October. That’s until you lose them and have to fork out the same amount over and over again.
The good news is you can still use your regular headphones with the use of a dongle, but that didn’t stop the internet from losing it over the new Apple announcement, leading to the hashtag #BringBackTheJack trending.
R.I.P wired headphones, the people of Twitter are divided. Here’s some of the most hilarious reactions:
The iPhone 7 is water resistant so that your tears can run across it after you lose your headphones

The good news: You'll never have to untangle your ear buds.
The bad news: You'll never find your ear buds.
