With the launch of the official iPhone 7 just a while away, the anticipation is worse than even the most nail-biting cricket match between India and Pakistan, or when you’ve proposed to your partner, and they’re just taking too too too long to answer.
As is accompanied with every new Apple launch, this time the build-up included a whole host of rumours regarding the features, the hardware – dual cameras, boost in memory, and let’s not forget all that talk about the eradication of the 3.5mm audio jack. It almost feels like the end of an era with that one. No, wait… the end might be with the rumoured vanishing of the iconic home button. But that is such a signature feature, Apple loyalists would cry… Well, Tim Cook will end the misery soon.
Oh, and then there is the price! With the iPhone 7 coming in, some mere mortals like the writer of this article may finally be able to afford an iPhone 5!
So, with the clock ticking way too slowly for many, the anticipation regarding the Apple event is building up to a crescendo. And where else would people vent their feelings than on social media. There are also some plots and plans on how to acquire the iPhone 7, as well as a couple of hypothetical scenarios.
If you’re in the same boat, or just love looking at your friends as they bite their nails off waiting, we picked out a few of the funniest tweets and posts floating around. The best is this one by Red FM on Facebook, with over 1 million views and almost 20,000 shares, and it hasn’t even been 24 hours since upload:
But then, Twitter can never disappoint, now can it?

I dropped my iPhone accidentally in the morning. Wife thinks it’s a conspiracy. I am accused of manufacturing context for #iPhone7
