The launch of Apple’s new iPhone 11 Pro was without a doubt meant to gain traction but with a little bit of backlash this time. Some users have complained about the new design triggering their trypophobia which is a fear of seeing small holes.

Apple unveiled its iPhone 11 Pro that features the three rear cameras packed closely together on the back of the phone. If that was not enough, the cameras sit alongside the torch and audio zoom microphone which means more small holes clustered together.

The term trypophobia was first used in 2005 on Reddit and since then has become quite popular on social media. American star Sarah Paulson and Kendall Jenner are among those who say that they suffer from this condition.
