Twitter Isn’t Happy About Apple’s New $159 Wireless ‘AirPods’, But They Did Make for Some Good Jokes

Yesterday, Apple unveiled its “new” iPhone 7, announcing a bunch of “cool” features like a longer battery life, a “better” camera, faster processing and “water resistance.” But, in an effort to prove that they haven’t run out of ideas, they also showed off a feature that almost immediately became the internet’s biggest joke: $159 wireless earbuds (now called “AirPods” because they can’t really call them “AirBuds,” now can they?).

It’s the feature that no one asked for, but we’re all getting because the new iPhones don’t have headphone jacks.

Twitter was displeased by the development, but on the bright side, at least they made for some good jokes. Here are some of our favorites.
