Will Apple fix their root cause of problem or?

Apple’s new feature “Dynamic Island” looks like an amazing update.

But, is it really amazing?

Well, not really. Let’s see the reason:

As a result: Dynamic Island in in RED Zone.

“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”
-Steve Jobs

Bonus Reason: Finger Stain on Camera

Users can touch on camera when they trying to click buttons. It can cause a smudged image!

Is it really a mistake?

A massive company like Apple can make a mistake such a big is this?

They wanted to fix their front-camera problem but, the solution is not solving the root cause.

What do you think?

Will Pacman eat Apple bite by bite or, will Apple fix this problem?
