It's all a scam!

Men are notoriously guilty of sometimes exaggerating the size of their manhood – and Apple has just made it a little bit easier. People have noticed that the new camera on the latest iPhone makes it easier to be "cockfished".

Apple released the iPhone 11 Pro on 10 September 2019 and of course it came with a number of exciting new features, including an upgraded camera. The new phone features three wide-angle camera (wide, ultra wide and telephoto) lenses allowing the user to capture four times more of the scene. It also allows for better images in lower lighting and it's perfect capturing those dreamy scenery shots.

However, not everyone is using the new high-tech camera for taking photos of sunsets. Some have discovered that it has, um, some other uses like… enhancing the size of your penis.

What is cockfishing?

Cockfishing is basically the younger cousin of the catfishing. A catfish is someone that uses another identity for their internet persona, but a cockfish uses altered penis shots to make it look larger than it actually is.

The new iPhone's three-camera lense makes that a possibility but it's not only achieved by using the new iPhone. If you haven't had the chance to upgrade yet (or you're an Android user), smaller objects can be used to make the penis look bigger in comparison. Of course, there's always Photoshop and other photo-editing apps too.


Someone discovered that cockfishing can be made simpler by using the new iPhone 11 Pro camera and shared the results on Twitter (don't worry, only with a banana).

Needless to say, people have thoughts on the matter.
