You guys, the day is finally here! That's right, the anticipated Apple Event 2017 at Apple's new Steve Jobs Theater is underway, and the tech giant is rolling out the new iPhone X, iPhone 8 (we guess they're skipping 9) and more! We're roundin' up some of the funniest tweets about the event—check 'em out!
Firstly, as a refresher, Apple recently switched up their App Store logo for the first time in years, as reported by The Next Web. Yup, no more pencil-ruler-paintbrush combo! But does it look like a bunch of popsicle sticks to you?

Anticipation was high as the Apple Event 2017 got going, with Twitter users aplenty making their true feelings about the iPhone known. One user laments the iPhone's gradual loss of peripherals—who knows what's next to go?

Of course, some people are simply wondering how iPhone users are going to handle all this fancy, newfangled technology when they still have trouble using a turn signal. (Fittingly, this appears to be a local police force's tweet.)

As noted by Vox, the special Apple Event started at 1 p.m EDT today. Some could hardly contain their suspense before the show got on the road.

Enough of this! Let's get going on the announcements. As reported by the Verge, there's a new iPhone X and and iPhone 8. The X is being called the “future of the smartphone” and, um… it has no home button, as noted above.
The new iphone 8 is going to revolutionize the way you ignore your friends when you hang out.#AppleEvent

The presented order of the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X announcements at the Apple Event has some users in stitches. Immediate upgrade!
Usually Apple waits a year before making their phones obsolete. The iPhone 8 lasted about 10 minutes #AppleEvent

But what's the difference between the 8 and the X?

The iPhone 8 also has, like, a lot of glass on it…
iPhone 8 has glass on the front and on the back…
So now I can break the back of my phone 🙁 #AppleEvent

The iPhone X can unlock with facial recognition.
No chance I'm buying the #iPhoneX, if Zayn Malik gets his hands on my phone he can use facial recognition to get in��
