New Yorker magazine obsessed with portraying people glued to their mobile devices

The New Yorker magazine is known for its great cover art. But this year, it’s repeatedly hit the same theme of showing people fixated on their smartphone and tablet screens.
The first time it was insightful, making a commentary about life in an always connected society.
But the publishers have experienced the law of diminishing returns on this theme. We get it – people are addicted to their phones. Now move on.
Included with this article are covers from New Yorker issues dated Jan. 6, May 5, July 7 & 14, and Aug. 4.
