What a surprise, this disappointment was because they had the "courage" of dropping the headphone jack and making the iPhone 7 almost similar to the 6-6s. Like Carlos Mencia said DEE DEE DEE!!

Or that people are satisfied with how they get the big sized screen with many fixes that the 6 had with the bending issues and all nevermind the headphone jack that had no affection towards this. It's coming close to becoming obselete ever since we started moving towards a more wireless world with all the technology built around it and is still expanding. I like my 7 the way it is. Can't wait for next years!
