While the Apple products being priced on the higher-end has been an ever-so-persistent theme of mockery, this time Apple gave away a few opportunities to the trolls themselves. During its announcement of eliminating the 3.5mm audio jack, Apple made it just too easy for parody video producers, meme generators and comedians around the world. Apple said that it took them a lot of courage to take the decision to drop the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Then the much speculated wireless earphones that Apple confirmed this launch by unveiling the AirPods, proved to be another playground theme for parody. People have been going on about how Apple has only made those wireless earphones so that people can lose them. Below are some of the best parody videos of Apple, and they are all a laughter riot. Popular comedians and parody video creators like All India Bakchod, JacksFilms, Shubh Desi Videos, The Whatever Show, and others are at it.
Not just videos, even people on Twitter had some of the most hilarious reactions to the Apple launch.

Further, there was recently an article by Quartz, which had a really funny take on Apple s logo for the iPhone 7. According to the publication, Apple has committed a blunder in marketing its new iPhones by not considering the translation of the slogan in other languages. Apple s slogan for the new iPhones this year is, This is 7 . Now, according to the article, in Cantonese, seven, or , is pronounced chat in the language, and is also a slang for penis. The word isn t particularly offensive. Instead, it is often used to describe a hilarious person or thing, or mock someone gently. Let s say a friend slipped in public, or got a goofy haircut: you can say to him in Cantonese You are so seven, without hurting his feelings too much, the article read. Well that didn t turn out too well for some Apple fans in China. Also read: Apple fans chose to watch iPhone 7 launch event over porn: PornHub
