Apples New Phone

Apple released a new iPhone with a larger screen. This is a big and some what reluctant change to they style and the intents. Steve Jobs envisioned a small iPhone design with a 4 in screen that could easily accessed with one hand. He saw the size of the human hand as the biggest constraint when designing a cell phone. He wanted the user to be able to select anything on their screen with there thumb.
Samsung has taken a much different approach, making the smart phone experience a two hand job. As smart phones become more fast and powerful they become able to do tasks that used to only be done on a laptop. A larger screen makes laptop type tasks such as email and reading news easier. It seems that Steve Jobs may not have anticipated this change in technology but apple as adjusted there style releasing a 5.5 iPhone 6 plus.
