The iPhone 6 brings in a larger battery, but not necessarily better battery life. the larger screen and battery scale to one another similarly to the iPhone 5S, suggesting your time between charges is going to be the same. Well, if you use the standard charger, that is.
Choice is a magnificent thing, but comes at a price. Sometimes that price is severe, and sometimes it’s $1.99. In downloading several popular third-party keyboards for iOS 8, I made several “choices”. As it turns out, you might want to hold off for a bit.

It’s the first day the iPhone 6 has been out in the wild, and what do people do? They smash it! They call them "Drop Tests," aimed in some cases to freak out iPhone fans in line for the device, and in others to actually, truly test the device’s ability to withstand the ground. Disclaimer: Andy Samberg has not yet done a "happy birthday to the ground" to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. We’ll be waiting on that one.

All this chatter about iOS 8, and it seems everyone is slow to upgrade! Via several sources who track which OS is in use on their network, we find that iOS 8 is not yet widely used, and is seeing a slower uptake than iOS 6 or iOS 7 before it.
Chitika, Mixpanel, Appsee, and Tapjoy are all networks who provide information about OS use based on their ad networks. Through charts they have provided, we see that iOS 8 is on a slow march to its eventual takeover. There could be a variety of reasons for this slow iOS 8 adoption rate, which we’ll unceremoniously jump right into!
