The iPhone 6’s larger screen may not mean Apple has sacrificed easy use of the handset with one hand, previously unseen images of the phone’s front panel suggest.

iPhone 6: leaked photos show plans to facilitate one-handed use

The iPhone 6 leaks and discussions are all around the place and it has been getting difficult to put our head around all of it. But one off the most talked about features, which was the larger sized screen, became a cause of concern for many analysts. Many people raised questions on the practicality of this increase in size of the iPhone 6 models and the question to be answered was whether the top part of the phone would be accessible with one hand. The need to enshrine the principle of easy one-handed use was a huge part of Steve Jobs' resistance to calls to manufacture iPhones with more expansive screens. This debate has been put to rest a long time back with some assurances from the leaks which have come in previously in the form of pictures.

Some recent photos by uSwitch Tech in conjunction with long-established leaks expert Sonny Dickson have clearly suggested that the iPhone 6 is going to be usable by one hand and chances are that Apple has reduced the screen size at the top which wouldn’t otherwise be accessible by one hand. This adjustment can be clearly spotted on the new pictures of the iPhone 6 where we can see that there is little real estate left where the Home Button is as compared to the iPhone 5s. Though there are chances that this might just be a trick of the perspective but there is less chance of that.

Though this is a small change but it would mean that the entire screen is accessible by one hand and there was no need for Apple to reduce the screen size or make the entire phone much larger.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
