How to Choose the Right iPhone as a Senior

iPhone 6, measuring 4.7″ diagonally and 6.9 mm thick, is bigger and thinner than previous iPhones with their 4″ screen. iPhone 6 Plus is even bigger at 5.5″ and only slightly thicker than iPhone 6, at 7.1 mm thick. You can get iPhone 6 or 6 Plus in gold, silver, or space gray.

Because of its large screen, iPhone 6 Plus also supports new, expanded views of the Home screen and some apps when you hold it in a horizontal orientation. Other differences between iPhone models come primarily from the current iOS, iOS 8.
