Apple confirmed during their iPhone event on Wednesday, Sept. 7 that the new smartphone will no longer have a conventional headphone jack and will be able to be used with new wireless earphones called AirPods. The AirPods will connect digitally with all Apple devices and are designed to only play music when they're in the users' ears, but not everyone is excited for the new earphones.

Apple's next iPhones will come without the analog headphone jack that's been standard on iPhones and most other electronic devices for years. The company designed new wireless headphones called AirPods to replace the traditional ear buds.

The announcement of Apple's new AirPods, though, has already generated strong and funny opinions on social media with some users, brands, and media personalities. Many mocked the headphones' unique design.

Others poked fun at the AirPods' name.

But a lot of jokes were made at how easily users will lose or misplace their AirPods,

Not all reactions to the AirPods were negative. Some social media users responded positively to the new earphones.
