Dramatic iPhone 11 design changes appear once again in new case leak

Dramatic iPhone 11 design changes appear once again in new case leak With August coming to a close, Apple should begin sending out invites for its September media event any day now. Just like last year, the leaks surrounding the next generation of iPhone models have begun to pick up as we've gotten closer to the official reveal, and we might have even seen the final designs (or something close to it) earlier this week. Now, the same source from that leak has returned with another photo that seems to confirm the suspected design of the 2019 iPhone, as well as the names that each of the new iPhone models will carry.

Apple unveiled its new iPhone models on Tuesday -- but while some tech fans applauded the new phones' design and specifications and others weighed in on their pricing, another feature has caught the eye of trypophobia sufferers everywhere.

The Pro and Pro Max phones feature three camera lenses. And while the design is likely to appeal to photography fans, some social media users say it is triggering their trypophobia -- an intense, irrational fear of small holes and clusters of circles and bumps, such as those in a honeycomb, lotus flower or bubble bath.

Apple could add in-screen fingerprint reader to 2020 iPhone

Apple could add in-screen fingerprint reader to 2020 iPhone According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple has been working on in-screen fingerprint readers. But that feature won’t be ready for the new iPhone that will be announced next week. It could be released in 2020, or maybe 2021 if Apple’s suppliers can’t meet deadlines. If you’ve played with the most recent smartphones from Samsung, Huawei and other Android manufacturers, you know that in-screen fingerprint readers already work quite well. When you unlock your phone, you can see a fingerprint icon on the screen. It then works just like any fingerprint reader — you put your finger on the icon and it unlocks your phone.

Research into trypophobia is limited. Geoff Cole, a visual scientist at the University of Essex in the UK, told CNN that while it might seem "a little bit odd" for people to feel uncomfortable at the sight of holes clustered together, for people with trypophobia, the images can cause a range of reactions, with varying levels of severity.

According to research from the University of Essex, "the phobia arises in part because the inducing stimuli share basic visual characteristics with those of dangerous organisms."

Trypophobic images generally display "high (color) contrast at mid-range spatial frequencies" -- cycling from bright to dark three or four times per centimeter, seen at arm's length -- and have a "very unique spectral composition (brightness and contrast), something you don't see in the natural world -- except in poisonous animals," Cole told CNN.

Cole said his research had shown that 16% of the UK's adult population found the image of a lotus seed pod -- considered a typical trypophobic image -- "uncomfortable or repulsive to look at."

CNN has contacted Apple for comment.
