Apple fans are convinced the iPhone 11 looks like a bowling ball, a hob and a COCONUT

It’s the iCoconut! Apple fans are convinced the iPhone 11 looks like a bowling ball, a hob and a COCONUT thanks to its three rear-facing cameras

The new iPhone 11 has been ridiculed by fans on social media, who have described it as looking like a coconut because of its new camera feature. 

Apple unveiled three versions of the device at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino on Tuesday, showing off a handset with a 6.1-inch display that will come in six colours: purple, white, yellow, green, black, and Product Red.

However, the feature that caught the eye of most fans were the three cameras clustered at the back of the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max versions of the product. 

Apple boasts that the cameras will allow fans better photo capabilities than ever before but the design has left fans distinctly unimpressed. 

One claimed that the three cameras made the phone resemble a coconut while another compared the design to a bowling ball.

Several compared the device to aliens with a few even posting photos of the camera re-imagined as kitchen hobs. 

For people with trypophobia, the new design is a potential nightmare and several Apple fans shared their horror on Twitter. 

Trypophobia is a fear or aversion to the sight of clusters of small holes.

One fan wrote: ‘The new iPhone is creeping me TF out with the 3 little cameras #Trypophobia.’ 

For most fans, however, the design was simply an opportunity to poke fun at Apple. 

To many, the holes look like the aliens, including several who compared them to the creatures from movie Chicken Little

One said: ‘Honestly the new #iPhone11 is so ugly, seems like Apple’s out of ideas so they’re just making coconut phones now.’

A second added: ‘The new iPhone lookin like the little alien from chicken little lol.’

While a third joked: ‘I’m confused, did Apple just launched a new gas cooker or is this the iPhone 11.’

The iPhone Pro models will be able to take wide and ultra-wide angle photos, and feature a 2x telephoto lens.

The combination means you can ‘take all three shots from one vantage point,’ Apple says, for both up close and and wide views. 

The iPhone Pro also introduces a new image processing system called Deep Fusion, which the firm says is ‘computational photography mad science.’

Pre-orders for the iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max will begin this Friday, Sept. 13, at 5 a.m. PDT(8 a.m. ET) starting at $999 and $1099 respectively. The phones will begin shipping on Sept. 20.
