Apple unveiled its new iPhone 11, and the updated design is impressive, particularly the cameras.

The new iPhone 11 Pro models feature a new design element: three lenses. While some are excited, the updated look has also provoked some users’ trypophobia.

WebMD defines trypophobia as “a fear of holes,” while Wikipedia is a bit more specific defining the phobia as “an aversion to the sight of irregular patterns or clusters of small holes, or bumps.”

Apple just announced the #iPhone11Pro
