« We are captives to our phones, they are having a deleterious effect on society, and no one is coming to help us. On the upside, this is a great phone. »
As an iOS developer I had to move to the iPhone 6S because (a) I needed to be able to test 3D touch in my apps and (b) the larger screen size was the new "mainstream", despite my personal preference for iPhone 5 size.
I'm feeling a similar tug towards the XR. It was easy enough to ignore the X, because it had the same width as my 6S. But now the new "mainstream" phone, the XR, will not only adopt the X way of doing things but Plus-like resolution and behavior. Harder to ignore.
Xr and Xs Max have same screen resolution?
« Users with smartphone screens 6 inches or larger, like Apple plans to launch this year, typically use twice as many apps as those with 5.5-inch screens, such as those on the largest versions of the iPhone 6 or 7, said Kantar Worldpanel, a market research firm. Users of the larger devices also are 62% more likely to play games, and twice as likely to watch video daily as people with smaller screens. »
