Okay, now Apple is making it really hard not to crack wise about leaked celebrity pics. According to the New York Times, the next iPhone—expected to debut on Tuesday—will have a "one-handed" mode. No, really. Quoth the Times:
To deal with concerns that a bigger phone will make typing with one hand difficult (the current iPhone has a 4-inch screen), some changes to the design of the iPhones’ software interface will allow people to type or use apps with just one hand — there will be a one-handed mode that can be switched on and off, two employees said.
One-handed use has been a big part of Apple's rationale for sticking with a relatively small screen size all these years, so the rumor seems plausible. Then again, I don't see how a one-handed mode would work, exactly, unless it involves some kind of bizarro keyboard.
The Times also has some fresh dirt on the iWatch, which it says will have a "flexible display panel," a protective sapphire cover, and wireless charging capability. "[M]ultiple employees for Apple and its partners who were briefed on the products shared some details on the condition that they not be identified," the paper says.
