Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus: 40 big tips and tricks for the biggest iPhones
posted by Victor H. / Sep 24, 2014, 11:09 AM
The Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus arrived with a splash and a huge initial sales success, but since they are such a huge upgrade over the smaller, 4-inch iPhone 5s, there is a ton of new features and little things that you can do to tweak the iOS 8 experience on Apple's latest and greatest devices.
From Reachability to Family Sharing, the new iPhones have plenty of new featuresStarting with neat features like Reachability that allow you to reach every corner of even the larger phone easily, to the new Family sharing options that give you the opportunity to share apps between 6 people in the family, and finishing up with the plentiful new camera settings, there is a lot of new things that you can do with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
We have tried to cover every aspect of those changes and right below you'd find our 40 tips and tricks for getting the most out of the new iPhones in every aspect. And after graduating this concise course in iPhone functions, you can safely say you've become a more advanced user, right?
- Display 4.7" 750 x 1334 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.2 MP front
- Processor Apple A8, Dual-core, 1400 MHz
- Storage 128 GB
- Battery 1810 mAh(14h 3G talk time)

Only one I really like is the Bend trick

Real original. Do you always go on apple related articles just to talk crap? Get a life.

Dark I have been loving my iPhone 6. The camera improvements are actually very noticeable in indoor and low light too. I have a litte one on the way in a few months so having a nice camera will benefit me greatly

some of these things already exist while ago while other are for iOS 8 and not iPhone 6 specific . Anyway, In the third slide said to use iPad or high power charger for quickly charging your phone. I recommend against that. since high currents tends to inversely affect the number of recharge cycles for lithium-ion batteries. A good rule of thumb is NOT to exceed the rated battery capacity. (i.e. 3000 mAh battery ==> 3A max , 1800 mAh battery ==> 1.8 A Max) and so on.

Fortunately it is the device that determines the current draw rather than the charger. Think of the car analogy - a car is rarley driven at maxiumum speed 24/7 . My car may be capable of 300kph but I am only capable of driving it at 100kph. However I would have to keep my foot to the metal if the car was only capable of 90kph. By your reckoning attaching a 100A charger would charge the phone in seconds.

Lithium Ion battery charging method is called CC-CV (constant current, constant voltage). using this method generally allows your battery to safely charge for about two hours if you use the battery rated capacity 1mAh => 1 mA charging. what determines the charging current is both the charging circuitry (firmware) inside the phone and the driver that controls that circuitry and of course the USB charger. If the device did not recognize the USB charger, the charging rate the value is selected from a pre-defined value from the driver or form the firmware. Although, you can charge it at a higher current and it would charge faster the number of recharge cycles would generally decrease( so instead of 700 full cycles you get 500 or lower). The higher the current the charging/discharging current the faster the battery health deteriorate. A very high current/voltage/wattage can cause the battery to be destroyed. Trust me, i did research in that topic while interning at at chip manufacturer. We used to test batteries in special battery charging/discharging equipment. and also monitor the current inside the phone.

You can tell how many people on this comment section don't even own an iPhone and just want to say something. Only one person has pointed out that most of the things on this list already existed before iOS 8. I'm reading it and seeing things I was already doing on my 5S before the update even came out

I love that every Apple story is now ruined by the iBend catastrophe. You know there must be one or two employees at Apple who warned Apple execs they had a massively faulty iBend6 on their hands but the execs went, "Whatever, this 1gb ram $900 garbage is optimized for profit margins to add to the $120 billion in profits we have already from screwing over iDiots for a decade. We'll roll with this money optimizer, thanks."

Doesn't double-tapping open the recent apps menu?...
