Singapore Twitter users react to the iPhone 7 unveil
At 1am this morning (local time), Apple unveiled its 2016 iPhone release: the iPhone 7.
Before the reveal, fans and speculators had leaked some possible new features that would likely come bundled with the iPhone 7. These included the lack of a headphone jack, brand new colours, and a camera with two lenses.
Most of these were confirmed during the reveal.
Singaporeans have since taken to Twitter to share their thoughts about the new features.
And it's not all pretty.
No more headphones???
A revolutionary feature of the iPhone 7 will be the removal of the standard 3.5mm headphone jack.
That is the hole in your phone that you plug your headphones into to listen to Taylor Swift's imminent breakup song.
While Apple has promised that you can still connect your headphone to its lightning port through an adaptor, the Internet doesn't feel it's too great.
Some local twitter users express their anger...
Iphone 7's made water resistant because Apple's concerned that the phone wont be damaged by your tears when you lose the wireless earphones.

My new complimentary Beats headphones will go along so well with the new iphone 7... Maybe I should sell it pic.twitter.com/kxtJaBpQSZ

Some are resistant to this change...
One user laughed at the strange shape of the new airpods, which will ship with each set of new iPhones...
Am I the only one who thinks those iPhone 7 airpods look like white leeches stuck in your ear?

The new iPhone will also come in a two new colours.
Other than the three colours available for the iPhone 6s (rose gold, gold and silver), the iPhone 7 will boast two shades of black - "Jet black" and... plain old "black".
However, the high-gloss jet black is only available via the Apple website.
The wide variety of new colours have left Apple fans undecided on which colour their new iPhone should be...
You know for once, I actually have no idea which colour of the iPhone 7 I wanna get?

Some are just stunned at how beautiful the new phones look...

But, in general, users seem quite excited by the unveiling. Yet, it remains to be seen what the iPhone 7 will bring... other than a cheaper price tag on the iPhone 6s.
I'm actually happy for the new phone 7 launch. That means if I want to get an iPhone 6s it's cheaper now!
