When you’re deciding which iPhone to buy, your decision will be driven primarily by what size screen you want. The iPhone 5c (sadly relegated to one capacity, 8GB) and 5s have 4-inch screens, while the 6 and 6 Plus have 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens, respectively; think about how they fit into your life – literally.
There are other differences; the 6 Plus’s camera has an image-stabilising lens, and both 6 models are faster.
Since 2012, Apple has introduced a new model of iPhone in early to mid-September, and the signs point toward the successor to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus coming in the same time frame. If you’re coming up to the end of your contract, you might want to hold off a few more weeks. At its developer conference in June, Apple said that iOS 9 will focus on performance, and that it will run on models all the way back to the iPhone 4S.
