Today happens to be the 'iConic' day for the tech world. Tech giant Apple has just launched the much awaited iPhone 7 -- the latest upgrade in its smartphone family. The stage was set for CEO Tim Cook but Cook decided to carpool Karaoke because he's cool like that.
Apple also surprised everyone by announcing Nintendo's Super Mario game for the iPhone and iPad and viral Pokémon Go for the Apple Watch.
Funnily, Apple's official Twitter account goofed up by posting tweets revealing the new features on the iPhone 7 before announcing it onstage.

How many people are getting fired for these tweets tho? 😁 pic.twitter.com/ffURPo4l83— Marques Brownlee (@MKBHD) September 7, 2016
Good people on social media cracked all kinds of jokes but somehow gave us a relief from the template kidney jokes.
The anticipation for the event was such, the jokes were out even before the iPhone.
