Earlier this month, Apple introduced the iPhone 7. As usual, the product “sold out in just minutes,” and absolutely took over the news cycle.

Specifically, the brand’s new Beats EP collection offers a “hassle-free fixed cable,” meaning that the entire range of products won’t even work with the new iPhones.
