Should you upgrade to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus?

2014 iPhone buyers guide: How to decide if you should upgrade to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus!

When new iPhones are introduced one of the toughest decisions to make is whether or not to upgrade to the latest and the greatest. If money is no object, it won't matter. If you're due an upgrade on contract, it comes down to whether or not the new features in the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus are compelling enough to be worth $200 or $300 or more to you.

So what are the pros and cons of upgrading to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, and when does the cost get overwhelmed by the value? Let's take a look...

History of iPhone: From revolution to the next big thing

The definitive guide to Apple's reinvention of the phone: From the original iPhone to what comes next!

Apple introduced the original iPhone back in 2007, instantly obsoleting every other smartphone on the planet in every way that mattered. Over the next two years, with the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS, Apple increased functionality while simultaneously lowering price, taking the smartphone fully out of the niche and making it mainstream. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S continued that evolution, bringing support for broader carriers and faster speeds, better displays and new, natural language interfaces. The iPhone 5 took manufacturing to new levels and the screen to new heights, but most importantly it set the stage for what's coming next — iOS 8, the iPhone 6, the iWatch, and more. Before we embark on that brave new future, however, we're going to take a look back. This is the story of Apple's revolutionary phone. Of Steve Jobs' phone. Of the iPhone. And for many of us, our phone.

Note: For length reasons we've broken this piece into separate articles and sections. You can jump to a section via the links below, or read through for an overview and individual links below.

History of iPhone 4: Changing everything — again

Leading up to the iPhone 6 event we're updating and expanding our series on the history of the iPhone, continuing with the device that changed everything — again — the iPhone 4

Steve Jobs returned to the WWDC keynote stage on June 7, 2010. He'd introduced the iPad earlier in the year, and kicked things off with an update on how it, and the App Store had been doing (spoiler: Well!). Then he turned his attention to iPhone, and after recapping everything Apple had done to date, he began on what would come next. It had over 100 new features. It has an all-new design, an all-new camera, and an all new screen resolution. It was hot. It was the iPhone 4

Reports of iPhone 4 death/undeath in India have been greatly exaggerated [Updated]

Update: It sounds as though reports of the iPhone 4's death in India may have been greatly exaggerated. Instead, we're hearing it's nothing more than the normal changes in inventory levels associated with the timing of manufacturing runs. Of course, given the pattern of Apple's yearly product cycle to date, productions runs on the iPhone 4 will no doubt slow down and stop altogether at some point. However, that again wouldn't be unique to India. Just business as usual for Apple.

iPhone 4 owners: Has iOS 7.1 improved performance?

Has iOS 7.1 improved performance on your iPhone 4?

One of the features Apple lists for the just-released iOS 7.1 software update is "Improved performance for iPhone 4". That's great since previously performance was bad enough it had many people desperate to downgrade. That's nothing new, of course.
