Maybe its just me but a sheet of paper and a sixteenth of an inch worth of graphite from a five cent pencil saves me $899.99 over the Apple thingy for booze, hookers, cigars or whatever.

You apes. I just ordered my apple watch. I'll get the airpods when they make a black version because I stand with Kapperdick.

iPhone 6 is good enough I'll wait for the iPhone 8 10th anniversary edition. And in an ironic twist black is actually LESS conspicuous when it comes to the Airpods. But overall its a good idea hopefully it weeds the poors out of the ecosystem. Can't wait for my watch

And FYI iPad pro is just as awesome as I expected. Boomer partners won't let me use it to mark up docs though

You can order the same pizza from an Obama phone that you can order from the Apple 7.

Honestly, the drones will line up and buy it.

"Here is a phone that doesn't have a headphone jack. Now your expensive headset doesn't work with it. But it doesn't ship with the wireless headset. That will be sold seperately at $160. Because you're all rubes and its hilarious. I guess you can use an adapter meantime, lol? Because that's not irritating as f**k at all."

I keep waiting for them to jump the shark and for the up and comers in China to eat their lunch (which they deserve, since they taught China to make this stuff and set up the supply chain over there), but somehow people just keep swilling the koolaid.

haha you guys are so behind the times. same epople who bitched about removing the floppy drive and shit. Apple is completly right, it's absolty stupid to have wires for your headphones. It's a f**k mess and somehow those things always manage to get completly tangles. Who the f**k has expensive wired earphones. You guys are 45 and half deaf anyway. If you want to wear cans on your head there are great wireless ones anyway. But no one has made great wireless earbuds until apple.

can't wait to get these and just listen to podcasts inconspicuously at my desk all day. Headphone port is kind of useless at this point but of course all you dorks will pretend you spend 90% of your time listening to music AND charging your phone.

Chinese will never catch up. While you bitch about a headphone jack all the asian companies have phones literally bursting into flames

"all the Asian companies"

By that you mean Samsung? And only that one phone? And something like .01% of the time?

lol Saz, I would honestly be disappointed if you ever dialed back the hyperbole.

there are only a few companies that make phones and they are all shit except apple. I have a redmi that i got for like 100 to manage tinder crazies and the thing is shit, crashes half the time i use it and the battery is worthless. samsung has the exploding problem. never use huwei shit but they are run by the PLA so keep giving apple shit while you shovel your money into shitty tech that funds the chinese millitary. idk who else even makes smart phones aside from that. microsoft has shit the bed multiple times and i don't think RIM even exists anymore?

Apple is GOAT and that's why it's the largest company on earth. but keep whining about stuff you will pretend to have been cool with 3 years from now when everyone adopts it. Oh yea, wireless earbuds, i knew those would be a huge hit but (shit chinese company) made (shitty product) first so apple really isn't that cutting edge. :-@

But yea bro, how dare apple remove a headphone jack...but totally cool if your samsung phone blows your head off...it only happys 0.1% of the time :)) Do us a favor and keep using your note lil breh

No, you're just a shitty consumer. A mindless drone that buys things because some company tells you to.

The issue here isn't the disappearance of a headphone jack - the issue is Apple is removing the headphone jack to push their own product, so that they can jack up the price of the item in question and claim innovation. Removing features at the expense of others is idiotic.

In 2 years or so, Apple will add the headphone jack back to their phones and claim they are innovative again. They've already done this with the stylus.

Apple consumers really are the worst.
