iOS Device Summary: iPhone 6 Update
September 10, 2014
I’ve updated my iOS Device Summary to include the new iPhone 6 models.
Check out the iOS Device Summary page for the rationale behind the summary as well as PDF downloads—including optimized files for printing.
At $199, the 16 GB 5th generation iPod touch is still the most affordable compact iOS 8 device. It allows you to test on the slowest processor supported by iOS 8, with a screen resolution shared by the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 5s. There is, however, no iPod touch that provides a less expensive way of testing the new screen resolutions on a device.
Of the two new iPhone 6 models, the iPhone 6 Plus seems to be the more important device to have on hand for testing, with both a new scale factor and a greater likelihood of providing a modified user interface to take advantage of all that lovely screen real estate. •
