The iPhone team over at Apple have always been all about making their devices look slick AF. Well something must’ve been in their pumpkin spice lattes when they were coming up with the design for the 2019 range of phones because it seems like they were designed solely to trigger people’s trypophobia.
For those who don’t know what trypophobia is, it’s the visceral aversion to clusters or irregular patterns of little holes or bumps. If you’re not sure if this affects you, just look at some lotus seedheads and you’ll know.
JUST A WARNING FOR THOSE WITH TRYPOPHOBIA, THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE MAY BE TRIGGERING!
Anyway, here’s the lowdown.
Apple has unveiled the iPhone 11, iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max and while the new devices boast some impressive specs (and hefty price tags), all eyes are on the Pro and Pro Max’s cameras.
All three of them.
We get that cameras are the new battle frontier for smartphones and Apple’s new iPhones will be nothing less than a photographer’s wet dream.
But did they have to have three cameras positioned like that? Couldn’t they have just made it into one big camera or something and spare all those who suffer from trypophobia the anguish of looking at it?
Unsurprisingly, the new iPhone started triggering people’s trypophobia and causing people at the Apple event to have a rougher time than expected.
The next 12 months is going to be a rough time for some Apple users. Not only will they have to make sure their phone is face up at all times, they’re going to be extra careful in public because of all the iPhone 11 users who are out and about taking photos.
If this is the new design path Apple is taking with its devices, the iPhone 21 is going to be a full blown health hazard at this rate.
