Chris Evans speaks onstage at the WIRED25 Summit 2019 – Day 2 at the Commonwealth Club on November 09, 2019 in San Francisco, California.
Well, who wouldn’t? Chris Evans, aka Captain America, is a very wealthy Hollywood actor who can easily afford the latest iPhone model.
“I feel like my new phone is too heavy and I know it makes me look like the oldest dinosaur in the world,” the celebrity shared in an interview with Collider.
He said one of his biggest problems is that the latest iPhone 12 is difficult to hold, especially when you’re using your little finger to support its weight.
Why Chris Evans Loves His Old iPhone
According to the latest CNET report, another thing that worries Chris Evans while getting the latest iPhone models is the lack of a home button.

He admitted to missing out on this iconic feature after he finally decided to get the new iPhone 12 Pro.
Recently, the actor shared a picture on Instagram that showed him transferring data from his iPhone 6S to the new Apple smartphone.
Evans shared that he will miss the Home button provided by the iPhone 6S. Of course, many fans shared their suggestions saying that they should get the iPhone SE as the only model Apple still sells with a home button.
However, there is a big problem. The home button on the iPhone 6s is quite different from the iPhone SE.
The new model’s feature is a circular space that uses haptics to copy the response and action of the original home button.
Why Chris Evans Right—Is the Home Button Really Important?
Unlike the Fox-Home button, the original can actually be clicked. This means users can easily identify if they are already pressing physical buttons.
Apple developed the Home button so that consumers can easily switch from one app to another. Since the mechanical switch experienced a high level of use, it also caused some problems, especially when the buttons were used excessively.
But, it cannot be denied that this has been one of the most useful features of older smartphones. Also, Chirs Evans is right about one more thing.
He also shared that he prefers to use the gadget till it works. If this is the mindset of many individuals, there is a chance that the e-waste of Apple and other manufacturers will be reduced significantly.
Recently, there has been a huge increase in iPhone sales in China after the COVID-19 lockdown was lifted.
On the other hand, orders for the iPhone 14 were slashed by 10%, confirmed by Apple.
