Apple unveiled its new iPhones for 2019 – the iPhone 11 , iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max to much fanfare yesterday.
Fans were quick to pick up on a few new key features – such as the front-facing camera, which are perfect for taking ‘slofies’ (just don’t get them started on this new word).
There’s also something else that has got people talking and, in some cases, shuddering with fear.
Apple has also introduced a second camera lens placed in the back of the phone. With the iPhone Pro models, two more lenses have been added – so there’s a lot going on in the top left corner.
A glance at social media shows people with trypophobia are having a hard time with the effect, which resembles a cluster of holes.
Trypophobia is the fear of objects with clusters of small holes or bumps.

Other feedback included a comment saying the lenses resembled “spider eyes”.
Another person lamented: “Three cameras on the new iPhone actually triggers my trypophobia. I can’t have people walking around me with those cameras every day.”
Well, you can’t please everybody.
