iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus review: 3 months later

Three months ago we published our iPhone 6 review and iPhone 6 Plus review, diving deep into Apple's big and bigger new phones. We took our time and tested everything from the new screens to the new cameras to the new chipsets. But now we've lived with these phones for weeks at a time and we've gotten to know them better than any preliminary review would allow.

How to record phone calls on your Mac

If you're in a business — as I am — where you occasionally conduct interviews over the phone, or want to remember brainstorming sessions with a friend, you may wish to record your calls. In the past, this was a bit of a pain with iPhone calls, since iOS apps can't hijack your audio signal. You usually had to record using an external device, either by putting your iPhone on speaker or wiring it up in some way.

You can now get an iPhone 6 for as low as $129 at Walmart; iPhone 6 Plus also discounted

Walmart is offering a $50 discount on the latest iPhones, which means that you can get the 16GB iPhone 6 for as low as $129 on a two-year contract with AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. The 16GB iPhone 6 Plus is also discounted to $229 (down from $279).
