Well I'm glad I didn't get used to it. I have done it a couple of times but it always felt weird and sometimes something I didn't intend for happened.
I'm interested why though. Maybe something to do with the new allegedly edge-to-edge display iPhones later this year? 🤔 Maybe it feels wrong to press so hard right on the edge of a display with a curved body underneath?
I have no idea really, but I really look forward to seeing the new iPhones.
