On Tuesday, Apple revealed the much-anticipated iPhone 11. The successor to iPhone XR, the company also released the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. And sure, the triple camera setup in the Pro and Pro Max variants is impressive, however, it also inspired many memes.
From comparing the triple camera setup to the three dots on a coconut, to the three-eyed alien from Chicken Little, to an actual electric stove, people were quick to unleash their creativity on comparing the new iPhone models to all things.

The dual camera setup over time has become the new normal. But is three a bit much? Some people certainly felt so.

And then there were people who likened the camera placement to a three-piece induction stove…

… And to the three-eyed raven from Game of Thrones.
And as always, there had to be jokes about how the new iPhone is mindbogglingly expensive priced. While the iPhone 11 starts from Rs 64,900, the Pro and Pro Max models start from Rs 99,000 and Rs 1,09,900 respectively. The highest price in India is almost Rs 1.5 lakh for the 512 GB version of the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
So, some people just decided to DIY their own iPhone 11 Pro. All you need is bubble wrap, or something like it.

With Apple introducing three cameras on the phone, people thought the day is not far when that’s all the phone will have.

And in an even more bizarre development, the three-camera setup apparently triggered tryophobia, or the fear of small holes in some people. There have been full-fledged studies carried out on it, and according to what Dr Geoff Cole of University of Essex told BBC News, everyone has it, but it’s just a matter of degree. The phobia can be debilitating in its extreme form too.
