Apple confuses the market with ugly iPhone

The jury is still out as to whether Apple is serious about design any more after it released an iPhone which broke most of Steve Job’s design rules.

For those who came in late, Apple has unveiled the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, which will appear in the shops on 20 September.

Apple is facing shrinking sales thanks mostly to its iPhone’s failure to capture the imagination of fanboys while jacking up the price. This time though some Apple fanboys are complaining about the ugly design on this iPhone.

The problem centres on the three-camera lens which are so obvious they look like bowling ball holes (or somone has tried to shoot it three times). This is the sort of thing that Steve Jobs would have screamed at designers for producing. Coming on the back of a Mac design which is based on a cheese grater, some are wondering if Apple’s design mojo has gone for good.

Technology wise the three-camera lens is about all the novelty. And the iPhone 11 has a dual-camera system – the XR had one rear camera – built around wide and ultra-wide cameras, each 12-megapixels. Apple uses shading on the screen to help you get a sense of what's in the frame on wide shots.
