Built-In Optical Illusion in Iphone: The New Marvel!


Swarnali Datta

They say life is an illusion. The happy moments being nothing but a drop of water in the vast desert of dismal moments, the actuality of life seems nothing but an illusion now. Well, the book of life is very difficult to read on; it invites a whole philosophy, rationality and what not! But do you know even in the tech world, you can experience an optical illusion?

Well, before you lose it, here’s the revelation- iPhones have an in-built optical illusion called iSpy. But could you ever spot it?

Most iPhones include speaker grilles on either side of the charging port at the bottom, at least since the iPhone 7. But clients have been duped by the designers because there is just only one speaker on the right side. To test it, cover the right speaker while playing music, and the sound will be muffled; nevertheless, blocking the left speaker will have no effect. Prior to the iPhone 7, phones had a dedicated hole for a microphone, but it wasn’t perfectly symmetrical like many Apple products. In certain circumstances, the extra grille actually serves as a microphone.

Although each Apple product is uniquely designed, most iPhones contain this perplexing characteristic that appears to be intended to produce aesthetically pleasant symmetry.

For the ones wondering what optical illusion is, here’s a li’l brief.

The mind boggling world of optical illusion

According to Richard Gregory, an optical illusion in visual perception is a delusion brought on by the visual system and distinguished by a visual impression that arguably deviates from reality. The allure of optical illusions is that they have a reputation for deceiving both our eyes and minds. They lead us to mistakenly believe that what we perceive is reality. Moreover, optical illusions assist researchers in understanding how our brains respond when interacting with various images.

They are nothing but mind-boggling visuals known as optical illusions that are used to evaluate the degrees of perception in the human brain. Physical, physiological, and cognitive illusions can be divided into three primary categories, each of which has four types: Distortions, paradoxes, fictions, and ambiguities.

The chink in the armour

Iphones are unquestionably fascinating. From camera, display, to what not, Apple-made smartphones induce a sense of wonder every time they launch a new model! But then again, even the shiniest of armours have a chink in them.

The device’s energy-efficient settings, which delay charging, have recently infuriated users. By solely charging the battery with electricity that has reduced carbon emissions, the feature encourages consumers to reduce their carbon footprints. Following the tech giant’s announcement of an upgrade that will include 31 new emojis, including new heart colours, a moose, a donkey, a jellyfish, and peas in a pod, among others, irritated users took to Twitter last week.

Meanwhile, the business presented its most recent iPhone 14 and 14 Pro models, which have been criticized for being overly sensitive due to its “Crash Detection” feature, which automatically calls 911 when it detects the user has fallen. But even slight falls have prompted emergency communication, inundating dispatchers with potentially unneeded calls.
