What's your point? I've had every model of the iPhone since it debuted, and each one I've carried in my front and back pockets of tight jeans, and routinely sat in them. I've never once had any issues with any of the phones, EVER. Then again, I would never carry an object the size of a 6 Plus in my jeans pockets, EVER. So there's that.
The mini competes with the iPhone 6 plus. Now that most carriers support VOIP calling, just get a mini, transfer your cell phone number to Google Voice and keep using it with the same carrier. And it costs less. Pair the mini with the iPad Plus release and new iPods, keep them completely separate from the phone launch. Anybody think the iPod Touch will take on the 5.5 screen size? It will definitely get the 4.7 at a minimum. But I'm thinking 5.5 is the perfect gaming...
Even more than the 5c vs. the 5s, I would love to know how many 6 Pluses sold compared to the 6. But Alas, Apple doesn't provide that information. I'd especially like to know how many previous iPhone users chose the 6 Plus (I shudder to think of large numbers of Apple users opting for the phablet).But I don't know why the 6C would ever be the free phone. I expect the 5s to be transplanted into the plastic case and survive another year. Frankly the 6 does not offer that...
Fair enough. But I would still like to see the sit tests, along with the inevitable "will it blend" and drop tests. Just what does it take to snap the 6 Plus in two? For instance, if it's laying on my couch and I happen to sit on it, as I have with my 4, will it crack? It's so light and thin I have to wonder if it will provide enough resistance in a pocket to alert someone before damage is done, whether it actually breaks apart or not. Then again, if this hasn't...
Exactly, so what's the hangup over allowing the iPad hardware to make and receive cell phone calls?The 6 plus already doe sings with its screen that neither the iPhones nor the iPads can do. So now there's three discreet software packages Apple has to support (not counting the Touch). So my feeling is, just make iOS universal with respect to the phone and let the consumer decide if the 6 Plus is as big as they want to go with a phone.This is as arbitrary to me as Apple...
Again, the apologists say most people won't hold the iPhone 6 plus up to their head, but use headphones, Bluetooth, speaker, etc. if this is in fact the case, then why not enable the software in the iPads to make and receive calls as well? The hardware is all there as far as I know. Why not make it an option for those who want it?I certainly don't. In fact I'm getting a 5s to upgrade my 4. But I've read about many mini owners asking for it, here and elsewhere, and some...
If I had to get a case, I like the incipio stowaway as it allows me to carry my ID. Together with Apple Pay, I have everything in one small package for which I now have to carry a wallet and phone. If I get those smart locks for my doors, I won't even need to carry keys anymore.
Now that I see the 6 Plus next to the iPad mini and VoIP , VoLTE, et al are enabled, why can't the iPads be used as phones? Besides Apples arbitrary decision to dictate the size of a device they manufacture that can be used as a phone. It seems to allow LTE voice calls, one MUST be able to use the device hands free. I just don't get it. Now that Apple has jumped the shark with the 6 Plus, why have any restrictions now on what can be used as a phone? If it has an LTE...
I wonder in particular how prone the 6 series will be to snapping in half. Being so thin with so much surface area to torque, I can imagine sliding a 6 plus in a tight front or back pocket, sitting down quickly and splitting that phone in two, possibly with injury to the person.
I have had the original iPhone, the 3GS, and the 4s. I have never had a case on any them. Aside from a few scratches and a few dings and chips, they are all as good as new.The ONLY time I put them into a case is when I take them into the wild, and then they go into a waterproof case, mainly so I can use them in the water. I have a gopro style mount for the case and with such extreme use, accidents will happen.I'm going to get a 5s, and won't be getting a case for it,...
