New iPhone Disturbing People With Trypophobia (Warning: If You Have Trypophobia, Don’t Click!)

Does the back of the new iPhone…scare you? Make you feel uncomfortable? A bit uneasy?

If so…you may have trypophobia, or a fear of holes.

From my favorite research website, Wikipedia:

Trypophobiais an aversion to the sight of irregular patterns or clusters of small holes, or bumps.[3][4] It is not officially recognized as a mental disorder, but may fall under the broad category of specific phobia if fear is involved and the fear is excessive and distressing.[1][3] People may express only disgust or both fear and disgust to trypophobic imagery.[3]

While the regular iPhone 11 has just two lenses, the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max have THREE!

Apparently, lotus pods are a big trypophoic trigger. I imagine the eyes of spiders and flies would illicit the same reaction.

Don’t know what I’m talking about…here’s a video to further explain.
