Anger seemed to be the main reaction to Apple’s unveiling of its new iPhone 7, specifically over the tech giant’s bold decision to remove the headphone jack.
The hashtag #bringbackthejack trended this morning, with Apple and iPhone 7 mentioned in millions of tweets in Australia alone.
While much of the internet raged, a healthy cohort of Twitter predictably chipped in with its usual dose of wit and sarcasm.
Some riffed on the phone’s new “force-touch” home button, others on the inability to charge and listen to music simultaneously.
But public enemy number one was Apple’s wireless earbuds, or Airpods, which got a roasting over their cost or the ease with which they can be lost.
Here is a selection of some of the best reactions.

I don't even own the new iPhone yet but I can guarantee you I have already lost one of my AirPod ear buds.
