I Feel Bad If You Bought This iPhone

Welcome back everyone, there was a specific iPhone that came out a long time ago, and this was an iPhone that was kind of revolutionary at the time, but to be honest, I kind of feel bad for people who bought it because the successor of that iPhone was pretty much better in every single way, this specific iPhone is the iPhone 6. The thing with the iPhone 6 is, first of all, it came out in 2014 and it was one of the first redesigned/bigger displayed iPhones that we had since the iPhone 5, but Apple also released a bigger version of that phone which was the six-plus, and that was a pretty big change for sure. Funny enough. these are still some of the best-selling iPhones of all time, and one of the best-selling phones of all time as well, so a lot of people bought this phone, which is pretty interesting because this iPhone suffered one of the biggest problems ever, which was bend gate.

These iPhones actually ended up bending very easily, so Apple eventually responded to this situation by improving the build quality with the successor, the iPhone 6s/iPhone 6S Plus. Another reason why I feel bad for the iPhone 6 is that the iPhone 6S was a pretty big upgrade from this iPhone, it actually is still supported with iOS as well! This makes it even bigger of a change considering the iPhone 6 stopped getting support on iOS 12. When you think about it, an iPhone that came out in 2014 isn’t getting software support anymore, but an iPhone from 2015 is still supported, think about all of the features that we’ve gotten since iOS 12, that is an insane amount of capability that the iPhone 6 never got to see!

On top of that, a lot of applications aren’t going to be supported on iOS 12 that much longer, whereas the iPhone 6S will continue to get application support for many years past the iPhone 6. Overall, the iPhone 6 had its fair share of problems, but the success of the iPhone 6S also makes the iPhone 6 seem like a very strange iPhone, what do you think?
