The widespread fashion for phablets, that is, smartphones with a screen diagonal of 5 inches and above, began relatively long ago, but it was not until 2015 that Apple first abandoned the 4-inch standard, releasing the first devices with 4.7 and 5.5-inch displays.

Since most of the owners of new iPhone models have previously also used Apple smartphones, for many of them the transition from compact iPhones to phablets almost 16 centimeters long and almost 8 centimeters wide (iPhone 12 Pro Max) has become somewhat problematic.
However, Apple tried to improve the ergonomics of the device using software methods, in particular, by implementing the mode “Convenient access”that allows you to lower the iPhone screen to reach the top of the iPhone with one finger.
This simple yet powerful feature allows you to easily reach the top row of icons on the iPhone screen (works on iPhone 6 and newer) in portrait orientation with your thumb. It’s also much easier to navigate Safari’s address bar, Mail, and many other apps that have controls at the top of the screen.
