Apple has unveiled its next new handset, theiPhone 7, in grand fashion at an event in San Francisco.

The conference was live-streamed across the world as fans of the tech giant eagerly caught a glimpse of the next big thing.

New features have caused ripples of excitement – but the price and the scrapping of old features such as the headphone jack and the price are causing so much angst online.

Here’s how social media reacted to the new iphone.

1. Arthur made an appearance

When they pass you the aux cord but you have a iPhone 7

The decision to get rid of the headphone jack hasn’t been the most popular in the world.

2. As did the ‘world’s smallest hair dryers’

(They’re actually wireless AirPods, which will set you back £160 and you can

3. And people joked about the price

Some people thought they’d have to resort to drastic measures to get AirPods because they can’t afford the new phone.

We’re not sure they’ll work, though…

4. Wires? So retro

When 90s kids try to explain technology to their own children, we’ll have to really try to get across the pain of wasting hours of your life untangling wires.

Because they’re not going to have a clue.

5. Conspiracy theories were rife

Funny how that happens, isn’t it? It’s almost as if we need to buy an expensive new phone.

6. One woman saw a problem with the AirPods

Which made people laugh out loud.

7. And we’re going to need a new app for them…

How are we going to stop ourselves from losing the headphones if there’s nothing to attach them to!?

8. Fancy camera can’t fix some things

Even a dual-lens camera won’t make us good-looking. But maybe try a Snapchat filter?

9. There’s only one benefit

Basically the only reason anyone would buy an iPhone 7.

Apart from that fancy camera.

10. Still no group FaceTime?

For some reason, many people are very angry that there’s no group FaceTime function.

They want to be able to see ALL their friends’ lovely faces at the same time, but it’s still not possible.
