In a star-studded event on Sept. 10, Tuesday, Apple unveiled the new iPhone 11 and Twitter is having a field day roasting its camera-heavy design and expected high price.
iPhone 11 has two cameras stacked atop one another, while the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max both sport three cameras, arranged in a triangle. Apple, which is otherwise known for its history-making sleek and elegant gadgets, is now being trolled as people are finding the new models clunky and off-the-league. It is just few hours and Twitter is already brimming with iPhone 11 memes and jokes on the peculiar design.

Some social media users also claimed that the iPhone 11 design has triggering effect on trypophobia, an intense emotional reaction to clustered patterns of holes or bumps.
3 cameras on the new iPhone actually triggers my trypophobia. I can’t have people walking around me with those cameras every day 🥺🤢

They somehow look like 3-eyed monsters rather than phones

Another collective groan comes over slofie, slow-motion selfie feature in iPhone 11. It was announced in the Apple launch event that user can make slo-mo selfie videos with the phone’s front-facing camera.
apple please stop.
