New iPhones has something frightening as its trypophobic design disturbs people, CNN reported

So, Apple representatives offer users not only a longer battery life of the phone and six colors at once, but also several cameras that provide the highest quality picture.

Why is this a problem? At least because the three cameras of the iPhone 11 Pro are a real trypophobia nightmare.

Trypophobia is a fear of round holes in their clusters. Scientists think that this is an evolutionary mechanism that helped our ancestors survive, since structures with many holes are characteristic of poisonous animals and plants.

Although phobia is not an official medical diagnosis and is not included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, surveys show that up to 16% of people around the world can experience fear of cluster openings.
