iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were launched in 2014 and both were a huge success. They were the next big upgrade after iPhone 5 with iPhone 6 Plus being a “brave” upgrade for Apple as they had never before launched a phone with display bigger than 5 inches. iPhone 6 Plus came with fresh features such as Touch ID and 128 GB storage.
