If you're an iPhone user with small hands, Apple is slowly turning its back on you. It's not you, it's them.
That's because the devices keep getting bigger, and the tech giant is slowly but surely axing its smaller models.
Apple's newest and biggest phones, the iPhones XS, XS Max, and Xr range in height from 143.6mm to 157.5mm.
Apple's smaller budget phone — and fan favourite for people with small hands — the iPhone SE, released in March 2016, in comparison is only 123.8mm. It may not seem like a lot, but those two or three centimetres make all the difference.
The company's new "budget" phone (it's still over $1,000 here in Canada), the XR, spells the end of the SE. Unfortunately, it's bigger than the iPhone XS.
Apple's decision to retire the SE, combined with its insistence on continuously increasing screen sizes has many people with small hands crying foul.

2. If you say the iPhone is the perfect size, you better be campaigning against the carefully, patriarchally designed lack of goddamn pocket space in my jeans
3. The iPhone! Is! Too big! https://t.co/dPud2wqbhe
