After the announcement of the iPhone 7 there was a flurry of amusing Tweets about the new £160 “AirPod” cordless earphones and the fact that phone has got rid of the headphone socket. Here are my person favourites.
First of all reaction to the new earbuds…
I'm really worried about losing the wireless earbuds, wish they sold something to attach them together, and then attach it to my phone

I already lost those wireless earbuds and they're not even out yet. #AppleEvent

.@TwopTwips help Apple pay their massive Euro tax bill by paying £160 for some earphones.

And then the reaction to the lack of the headphone socket…
I'm going to wait an extra year for them to introduce the iPhone 7S with its revolutionary 3.5mm audio headphone jack

However, possibly the most cringe-worthy part of the whole announcement, was Apple insisting that it had taken “courage” to remove the headphone socket. That didn’t go down well.
Courage. D-Day. Moon landing. Removing the headphone port.
