IPhone 11: Why are some people afraid of the new iPhone


Apple is known for its product design. Apple's new iPhone 11 is once again a combination of beauty and innovation, but some people are disgusted by the three circular cameras behind the phone. The reason for this is a mental condition called tropophobia.


Tropophobia is the fear or disgust that can arise from looking at geometric patterns or jerks, especially many holes and many small rectangles.

Tropophobia hit the headlines on Tuesday with Apple's new product offering.

The most common example of tropophobia is fear generated by the seeds made in the lotus flower.

In addition to this, there are examples of the mental state of being born by looking at the geometric shape of a honey hive or a marine sponge.


Professor Arnold Wilkins and Dr. Jeff Cole, two researchers at the University of Essex, believe that because of these shapes and patterns, some people may have a sense of hatred as part of their defense system.

Since the characteristics of many life-threatening animals, such as spiders, snakes, and scorpions, are similar, hatred is an evolutionary process that has to do with individual protection.

Although it cannot be diagnosed physically, it is also known as relapse pattern phobia.

An example of this is the appearance of three circular cameras mounted on the back of the new iPhone.




People with this condition did not feel threatened by previous models. A New York-based student first identified self-diagnosed incidents on a Facebook page in 2009,

The iPhone 8 or XR has only one rear camera and does not produce any strange patterns.

The iPhone 11 Pro and its Max Vision, however, come with three cameras that create a disturbing pattern for people with tropophobia.

The company's designers were clearly not thinking about this rare mental quality when adding more cameras to their flagship product.


In fact, the most unique thing about the launch of cameras for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max is that they can record multiple videos at once.

Pro models include telephoto and ultra wide cameras, and there is a new feature in night mode, that means people can make photos in low light.

But they are a nightmare for people who have phobia of holes because their heartbeat is intense and sometimes they feel like vomiting or dizziness or their crouching.


So some people see this as a good reason not to buy a new model.

While others have commented on social networks what they see when they look at the back of a new iPhone.

When a user using Twitter saw the photos of the iPhone Pro, their effect was all these cameras. '


The reaction to seeing small holes can be extremely intense.

Even more so when several iPhones are displayed together to display a colorful presentation in the photo.

Dr. Jeff Cole, a researcher at the University of Essex, told the BBC: "We all (more or less) suffer from trauophobia, and so the way we manifest it depends on the degree to which we have it." '

It's not easy to avoid memes or news about Apple's offering on social media right now.


The word tropophobia is widely mentioned on Twitter and its images are always lively.

American horror story series actress Sarah Paul Sun and model Kendall Jenner are among those who say they suffer from tropophobia.
