Denny's, Dos Equis and One Plus earned the most love on social media, mostly by taking shots at Apple

Apple may have introduced the iPhone 7 last Wednesday, but what really got people talking was the company’s decision to jettison the beloved device’s headphone jack. Brands like One Plus and Denny’s were quick to crack jokes about the controversial move, while brands like Nordstrom leveraged the publicity of the event. At any rate, these brands all emjoyed high engagement levels.

One Plus

An Apple competitor, One Plus posted a clever comment on the iPhone’s 7’s missing headphone jack. With a winking emoji, the brand pointed out that the One Plus 3 phone has a headphone jack for those lonely headphones out there. The Facebook post received 48,000 reactions, 11,277 shares and 3,000 comments. 


Quick-witted Denny’s was somehow able to bring up its pancakes in a tweet about the iPhone 7’s absent headphone jack. How can you resist when headphone jack rhymes with flapjack? The tweet got 4,096 likes and 3,156 retweets. 


In a tweet that generated 13,740 likes and 4,841 retweets, Nordstrom promoted the brand’s Sonix iPhone 6 and 6S cases right after Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 7. It’s possible the brand wants to get rid of its stock before ushering in the new cases.
