'Apple Plug' brilliantly trolls iPhone 7's headphone jack removal

One of the key takeaways from the announcement of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is the removal of the 3.5 mm jack. A decision described by Phil Schiller as one of "courage", Cupertino spent a lot of time then showcasing new Lightning EarPods, AirPods, and generally discussing why it is we no longer need the omni-present port. Where you'll have to stump up quite a lot of money to get a new iPhone sans the 3.5 mm port, there's an easier and cheaper way to achieve the new-found portlessness: Apple Plug. 

The folks at Nicer Studio achieve a solid troll/10 for their efforts to mock the iPhone's loss of its 3.5 mm jack. The Apple Plug is touted as a one-stop solution to those wondering what their iPhone could be like without the port, providing the 'upgrade' without the cost of a new handset. 
As you can see above, Plug retains the level of seamlessness we've come to expect from Cupertino. The color at the end of Apple Plug is available in each of the four colors of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, for complete discretion. The hilarity is only enhanced by that rather blatant innuendo.

Of course, Apple Plug isn't actually for sale — that would just be silly, now. Still, we'd definitely recommend pointing your browser over to the Apple Plug at the source, where you'll surely get a few laughs.

"iPlug: The lightest but not the cheapest. Come get it for $50, and make your 6/6s look like the 7."

$50 nah, that's not reasonable. Should be around $100 for this kind of tech.

Or even more. DumpDown dopey Apple fans are yet again getting ripped. Nothing new. What a pathetic ripped of fools buying a 720p screen phone in 2016 with a £600 price tag. OMG how insanely can Apple fans be that stupid is beyond God's believe. Just look at what the phone has to offer comparing it to S7 M10 1+3 and Z5 and other Chinese high end phones.

you forgot to mention note 7. Exploding batteries. Yeah! That is one hell of an innovation. Is there anything else to do except trolling.

That will be fixed very shortly. The iPhone 7 will never have the jack.

Which means it's not a male nor a female...but is closely related to eunuchs.

CALM DOWN, they haven't started selling yet. I have hope for humanity after watching the iPhone 6s sales do worse than the 6.

Apple actually isn't being stupid. Its proof the people who buy their phones are. Again, so much for the claim that iOS users have the highest IQ. Well do the math, how does it make sense to spend mor emoney for less product in ANY category. Let's use food for example. If a McDonald's regular hamburger was the price of a Burger King Whopper and the Whopper was the same price it is now, which one you think makes more money sense? Would a hamburger with a flat boring bun, a few onions, 3 pickles and a spurt and ketchup and mustard be more inviting vs a Whopper with a larger sesame seed bun, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, mayo and ketchup and even the meat is bigger too. The reason Apple keeps doing it is because people keep buying it. Now that sales are falling, now the next model will be 1080p and 1440p, and watch them raise he cost which si something other OEM's did not do. Apple is the only OEm who sells a 720p phone and calls it a falgship. Anyone who calls the base iPhone a flagship is a stupid mofo. Oh and Apple front camera on the new model is 7MP and now records in 1080p. Yet other phones with 3-5MP cameras do 1080p and even 1440p. But the fans never bring this up. Samsung's 12MP shooter has a 1.7 lens. How did Apple manage to get 12MP and get only to 1.8? The rear camera on the S6 is 16MP @ 1.9, again how is Apple only in the middle? Yet charging similar dollars? If you want the iOS experience it is obvious you have to pay what they charge of you want their one and only offering. But should a device with limits be as much as a device with none? NO! But the so called IQ smart, are to dumb to understand something so simple. Apple will keep doing it, until the fans stop buying their s**t. which they have already started not doing. The iPhone may always be around, but it will never again be what it was in 2007. Because never again will another OEM be coming from behind Apple in this category and Apple will never past them ever again. Like Microsoft, Nokia and RIM...they are DONE!

That's a male apparatus happily inserting itself into its female counterpart. Happens billions of times every day. Kindly get your mind out of the gutter sir or madam!

I wonder if they provided a 3D printable model, I might get it printed at shape ways and troll some iPhone users.

Interesting. I didn't think it was funny. Nice humor though. It is certainly a good mockery of Apple. What funny is, after you push it in, how would you get it out if it was real?! lol Very good pun though!
