Are the New iPhones Sexist Because They’re Too Big For Women’s Hands?

Apple announced its new iPhones last week and they got all the reactions you’d expect.  But here’s one word people used to describe them that Apple definitely didn’t see coming:  SEXIST.

The new iPhone XS Max has a six-and-a-half-inch screen . . . and the smallest iPhone that will be available is the iPhone XS, which has a 5.8-inch screen.

And some women say that’s not cool . . . because giant phones don’t fit into their smaller hands.

A professor at the University of North Carolina tweeted, quote, “Women like me with small hands . . . are stuck with something they can’t hold and constantly risk dropping.”

Older models are still available for now, and they’re smaller . . . but clearly, Apple’s moving in a bigger direction with their new phones, and if they keep that up, soon enough they won’t have any smaller phones left.
