Apple reveal their latest product, the iPhone 7, with some radical changes to the headphones...and not everyone is pleased!
After months of waiting and speculation, Apple has finally launched their latest product - the iPhone 7, in San Francisco yesterday.
Apple's CEO Tom Cook kicked off the announcement with a Carpool Karaoke with James Corden (of course!!) and Pharrell Williams who helped him get to the launch...
And the rumours are true, Apple will be ditching their traditional earphones on favour of a new wireless version...and not all of us are thrilled by the news!
The iconic brand's sales have been struggling for the first time in it's history...but will these newest version of its famous product bring back the fans?

There are pros and cons to wireless headphones - no more tangled wires at the bottom of our handbag, but also, these could be more easily lost.
The new wireless 'AirPod' headphones mean that users will no longer be able to plug ANY wired headphones directly into the phone, which may prove controversial with those who already have expensive headphones that they will struggle to use once they have their hands on the new model.
However, you are able to purchase headphones with an Apple 'Lightning Jack' or even a 'Lightning Connector' (the same connector as your charger) as a fall back option.
This is understandably reeeeally annoying some people as they believe Apple are trying to up-sell them into buying more of their products instead of using their own, but the connection actually comes in the box with your brand new phone so there's no need to worry too much.

The radical move by Apple has left many undecided on what they think about the new iPhone and many took to Twitter to voice their concerns...

Lol someone said the iPhone 8 won't even come with headphones you'll have to imagine you're listening to music.— Snapchat: nassyblue (@nassyblue) September 8, 2016

Many customers are also concerned about the cost of replacing the new headphones should you lose them as currently wireless headphones are the far more expensive option on the high street.
The iPhone 7 has two rear facing cameras instead of one, which each have a different lens. Clever!
Amazingly, the new iPhone will be water resistant. But, that's RESISTANT not water PROOF, so don't jump into the swimming pool with your phone any time soon.
The iPhone 7 is available in two new and different finishes, a 'jet black' and a 'black' (to replace the 'space grey' of previous models).
In terms of visuals, the new iPhone isn't doesn't have any crazy major changes but the new headphones are enough to get our heads around!
However, many consumers and investors seems to already be looking ahead to the 2017 version of the phone with more hope...
