There’s one big problem with the new iPhone (if you’re a woman)


The new iPhone Xs Max is the biggest yet from Apple with its 6.5-inch screen, which is all very well for those with big hands, but the rest of us – particularly women – will run the risk of a shattered screen every time we use it one-handed.

This hasn’t gone unnoticed, and Apple is facing a backlash for making phones that are too large to fit in the average woman’s hand. The tech giant also recently revealed that it would be discontinuing its 4-inch iPhone SE, which drew ire online.

My wife has small hands and has an issue with the size of her hand-me-down 6 Plus. But does Apple have a “responsibility” to make phones that fit every hand size? Where does it end?
