Apple’s FaceTime Icon Makes No Sense




I’ve never given much thought to Apple’s FaceTime icon, but it really doesn’t make any sense. Like seriously, what is the trapezoid on the right? It can’t be the lens because there’s a lens in the box. Is that the back facing camera and the triangle trapezoid is the front camera?

It’s supposed to be an old video camera glyph with the lens superimposed, but it’s so redundant that it still doesn’t make any sense for FaceTiming purposes.

The FaceTime icon should probably look something like this instead:

See it, it looks more like a webcam used for video calls this way

Sorry. It’s Friday, and I’m bored with nothing to praise or complain about. Let’s just blame Forstall and call it a week?
