#JackOff: Internet users already aren't happy with the iPhone 7

Apple’s product events never fail to whip the internet into a frenzy. But Wednesday’s iPhone 7 reveal has social media ablaze for all the wrong reasons.

When it was announced that the iPhone would lose the 3.5 mm headphone jack — an industry standard for decades — in favor of special headphones that used the phone’s charging port and wireless Bluetooth earbuds called “Air Pods,” social media users quickly voiced their displeasure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quickly, the discussion evolved — er, devolved — into one simple, concise hashtag: #JackOff

 

 

 

 

 

Good luck keeping track of those Air Pods, Apple users.
