 New iPhone ends with one hand holding era: big screen will take more attention.


Netease Technologies News September 15, Atlantic Monthly published an article that Apples latest generation of large-screen iPhone design marks the end of the one-handed smartphone era. IPhoneXs and iPhoneXsMax are designed to occupy more attention and more time.

The following are the main contents of the article:

Apples latest smartphone screen looks like a gaseous planet with a breakthrough in screen size.

The price of the new product is nearly $1500. The largest model has a 6.5 inch display. The entry-level iPhone XR comes with a 6.1-inch display, almost three-quarters of an inch larger than the previous large-screen iPhone 8Plus. The screen of iPhone8 is only 4.7 inches, which is the same as that of iPhone6 since its launch in 2014.

Obviously, the screen size of the new iPhone is really big enough.

What is the reason behind this product strategy? On the one hand, bigger, more expensive devices bring more profits; on the other hand, consumers seem to want bigger phones.

Apple issued a statement, hoping to tell consumers how to use smart phones. Instead of simply using it casually, use it wholeheartedly: get your whole body involved and take up more time and attention.

For a long time, the size of smart phones has been breaking through. Samsungs flagship Galaxy S9 has a 5.8-inch display, and the iPhone has grown from the initial 4-inch screen. As early as 2014, when Apple released the larger 4.7-inch screen of the iPhone 6, it was suggested that people with smaller hands, especially women, should be better able to operate their phones. Now, phones like this iPhone6 size are not big.

Apple isnt unaware that people with smaller hands cant easily touch the other corner of the screen with their thumbs. The company even installed a software action called accessibility to make screen images easier to click on. But behind the growing smartphone is a well thought out plan.

In the early days of the iPhone, as an electronic device, it quickly captured the curiosity and affection of consumers like a toy dog. Soon, peoples curiosity diminished, and the device became addicted to cigarettes. Ultimately, this obsession became a ritual, and smartphones were like Rosary beads, a kind of talisman to convey information. Once the phone starts supporting access to everything, it becomes a universal blank window through which you can peek into the universe.

Today, iPhones design takes up more visual and attention. With more search results on each page, digital maps get bigger and scroll through endless social network dynamics on a larger screen. Who needs an 80-inch TV set in the study when a smartphone just 6.5 inches from you provides a bigger and more effective view? When the infinite parallel universe can be accessed simply by picking up a slender glass device, who needs to start with a clunky, stupid virtual reality device?

The new iPhone is hard to use alone, because they mark the end of the use of smart phones with one hand. Its a legacy of an era with multiple choices, and mobile phones can be manipulated with a variety of unrelated external actions. Now, there are only two different ways to hold cell phones.

The first way is to hold the device in the palm of your hand, just like holding a sword hilt. As the fuselage widens, it is not very good grip.

The second way is to raise your head and your cell phone will automatically unlock. Now you need two hands to stabilize the device and operate it from side to side. Now your attention is almost entirely on the device in your pocket.

Ironically, the new iPhone, with its larger screen, comes with new software designed to help users manage the time spent on their devices. The feature, called ScreenTime, provides information, charts, and controls to help users understand how much time they spend on their phones and what applications they use. Feeling too obsessed with social media like Instagram and Facebook? It doesnt matter. Just put a limit on screen time and the phone will automatically exit those apps to help you avoid overindulgence. The reminder of screen time software can be ignored by clicking the button. Apple also wants both fish and bears paw: by adding screen time to iOS 12, it pushes the responsibility of reducing smartphone use to users, not to device makers themselves. In addition, an application is restricted to use, so you can switch to another application. As a result, the bigger and more expensive iPhone can continue to conquer human attention while helping to prevent the superficial effort of addiction.
