Technology giant Apple launched the highly-anticipated iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with features like immersive stereo speakers, wireless headphones and there was some cheer for Apple fans in India as well given they will be available in here from October.
Apple CEO Tim Cook called the new phones the "best, most advanced iPhone ever, packed with unique innovations that improve all the ways iPhone is used every day."
But all that most people noticed was that Apple had come good on the expectations that it was going to kill the ubiquitous headphone jack. And so a lot of the tweets, or at least the funniest ones, dealt with the death of the headphone jack:
