Apple has unveiled the new design for the upcoming iPhone 11, but its new camera feature is causing an unusual problem for some people.
The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are set to be on sale this week, and their new features include longer battery life and casing in purple, green, yellow and red - but it's the three-lens camera design that has got people talking.
Whilst the three lenses for Wide, Ultra Wide and Telephoto are being called "a photographer's dream come true", people with trypophobia are getting triggered because the cameras are designed in a cluster of circles.
Trypophobia is "an intense emotional reaction to clustered patterns of holes or bumps" - and people have been quick to point out that the iPhone 11 could do with a trigger warning.
Twitter has even placed a "sensitive material" warning ahead of tweets containing images of the new phone.
Some people with trypophobia even think they couldn't handle seeing the iPhone 11 every day.
3 cameras on the new iPhone actually triggers my trypophobia. I can’t have people walking around me with those cameras every day 🥺🤢— hot pumpkin princess eva gutowski (@lifeaseva) September 10, 2019
Meanwhile, some people saw the funny side; predicting the direction Apple is heading in.
Others questioned Apple's design choices.
They could’ve just made it into a complete square instead, why make it into separate circles like that-— Organic Yara || HBD RM💜 (@jamaisvutaeh) September 10, 2019
Even people without trypophobia think that the new iPhone camera design just looks, well, weird.
They somehow look like 3-eyed monsters rather than phones— అనిల్ | Anil K (@anilreddy12001) September 10, 2019
Apple is yet to respond to claims that the iPhone 11 triggers trypophobia, but with even die-hard Apple fans saying they won't be buying the new model, some suspect that sales could be impacted.
The iPhone 11 is literally making me shake with trypophobia. Imagine if you're a die hard apple fan and have trypophobia like me guess you might need to pass on the IPhone 11.— BlizzardKing (@VimBganya) September 10, 2019
And if you're unbothered by the design, pre-orders for the new iPhone models are available from Friday 13th September. Definitely not a bad omen or anything.
