Apple announced the new iPhone 11 on Tuesday — it’s the first iPhone released since Apple design chief Jony Ive left in July.
The iPhone 11 has two cameras, and the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max have three cameras.
Some people on Twitter are saying the clustered camera pattern triggers their trypophobia — a fear of clustered holes.

When Apple announced the new iPhone 11 on Tuesday, the trypophobic corner of the internet collectively cringed.
Trypophobia, a fear of clustered holes, affects 15% of the population, according to a 2013 study.
The iPhone 11 has two cameras stacked atop one another, and the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max both sport three cameras, arranged in a triangle. As soon as the new iPhones were revealed on Tuesday, a flood of tweets poured forth remarking on the design’s potential to unnerve trypophobes, as people affected by trypophobia are known.
It’s not clear if these tweets indicate that the iPhone 11 is genuinely triggering people with trypophobia, or are simply a reflection of all the hyperbole and jokes in the Twitter echo chamber. Whatever the case, the iPhone 11 trypohobia connection is now a meme that’s gaining currency.
