While being a left-hander makes you somewhat unique, it also comes with a whole host of daily hardships. Between the smudging and writing in spiral-spined notebooks, left handers face problems righties will never understand.
Now, there’s one more to add to the list. While thousands of shoppers flocked to get their hands on the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, left hand dominant purchasers were left a little disappointed.
There’s one main feature of the new phone that’s made it difficult for lefties to use.
With the larger Plus model, when the phone is switched to landscape mode, the side dock sits to the right, next to the home button, meaning if you’re left handed, you can’t reach it with your dominant thumb.
Another twitter user,commented, 'Turns out using the iPhone if you're left-handed isn't a party.'
Tsk, tsk. Apple pride themselves on being one of the most user friendly brands on the market, so they probably should have taken left-hander usability into a little more consideration, no?
13 million people have purchased the new iPhone and with one in 10 people being left handed, that's around one million lefties who are feeling a little, well, left out. (Post continues after gallery.)
