Apple talked a lot about the cameras on their new iPhones – the iPhone 11 and the 11 Pro and the 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 11 has 2 rear cameras, while the Pro phones have 3, comprised of a wide, ultra-wide, and telephoto lenses.
But it's not the camera specs that have people talking; it's the appearance of the cameras. They're big like bug eyes. If Apple were looking for attention, for something that would help them stick out, well, they've done it. The cameras are now the subject of a barrage of memes comparing the cameras to myriad objects such as a shaver and a stove. (READ: Everything Apple announced at its September 2019 event)
Remember, in June, Apple showed the Mac Pro, which really, really looked like a cheese grater. It makes you think: Is Apple deliberately doing these bold designs to make their product stick in people's minds? Well, let me tell you this: it's working.
If a guy asks me, "Hey, do you remember the computer Apple showed in WWDC?" I can honestly say I really do. "Ah yes, the cheese grater."
Now with the new iPhones: "Ah yes, the ones with the trypophobia-inducing camera array." It's great.
