'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.
