iPhone 6 | Did You Know?


Okay so I have officially had my iPhone 6 for 2 whole days now! I am so excited it feels like Christmas in September! The day I received the email saying when my phone would arrive was like Christmas Eve but the entire day I was waiting for it (okay so maybe it was only like 6 hours) was like torture. When I finally heard that FedEx truck door slam I ran downstairs and out the door so fast I think I scared the FedEx Guy!

 

Let’s start from the start.

I have had my iPhone 4G for nearly 3 years. I love iPhone and a die hard Apple Customer. Still my 4G was a 16 GB and once I started Blogging let’s just say those all went pretty fast. I was at the point where I would have to delete 2-3 Apps just to get enough space to snap a few pics of an event or special day. Then I would have to upload the photos off and replace the Apps. Crazy right? Don’t even get me started on needing to do an actual Software Update. I would sit there watching all my favorite Apps and they shook and shimmied while I decided which ones needed to be sacrificed for the latest update.

My faithful iPhone 4G…see that crack that just missed the camera lens?

When I heard about the iPhone 6 release date I was beyond excited that it was a mere month after my upgrade eligibility. I was determined to wait it out and get it. Needles to say after maxing out my 4G, I was definitely going to get more than 16GB this time around maybe 64GB? Then my Hubby saw that they were offering the iPhone 6 with a 128GB storage capability he said to get it. Well what he actually said:

“Get the 128GB , get what you need before you need it.”
-The Hubby

This is my Hubby’s theory on just about everything and even though I wasn’t sure I would need that much on my phone (I mean my iPad is 128GB) I still decided to follow his advice. Better safe that sorry right? I knew that I wanted to use my phone for maintaining my Blog on the go, recording Vlogs and staying on top of my Social Media plus still be able to have fun with it through games and convenience apps.

Pre-Order

I decided to pre-order because I hate lines, I hate crowds and I hate waiting. I placed my order on Friday the 19th and the order said my iPhone 6 wouldn’t ship for 7-14 days BUT I had a feeling that was to give themselves space in case of any stock issues. Sure enough I received my shipment confirmation on Saturday and that’s when all the waiting started.

It’s Here!

 
I chose the Gold iPhone 6 (4.7″ screen) and as you know with 128GB of storage. I didn’t select the Plus which is 5.7″ because I felt it would simply be too big. I am only 5’2″and that means tiny hands.

I'm still getting use to the extra size of the iPhone 6 but it's so worth it!

    I am an iPhone chicky too 😉 I've had every iPhone LOL. I love the family sharing too…but I wasn't sure if that came with the ios 8 update or not. Same with the "health". I can track my steps on the iPhone now. 🙂

    Enjoy!!
    Thanks for sharing!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Me Too! My family has gone over to the Android side but I am iPhone for Life 😀 Yes, the Health App is a great idea too. I think those both came with the update even if you don’t get the 6… Thanks for coming by 😀

  • livingmommywood

    Kid at Christmas for sure, enjoy. Though I love new gadgets this one didn't grab me because way to big for my liking. Again enjoy and btw love your hairstyle :)!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Definitely 🙂 I did think the size may be an issue but I’m getting use to it easily. I wouldn’t have gone for the plus but the 4.7″ is perfect. Thank You 😀

    • MrsTee Post author

      I love all things Apple because you can sync them all up so easily. Thanks!! Got it from a Blogger friend\’s Etsy shop… 🙂

    What fun! My husband ordered himself a new iPhone because he's due for an upgrade, and I can't wait to tinker with his because, while I love my 5S, it's running out of space quick. (I'm such a cheapskate, and I need to follow your hubby's advice of getting the storage you need before you need it because OMG, I have to delete things ALL THE TIME from my phone.)

    I hope you're having a fabulous time with your new phone! So excited for you!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yes! I am like a kid with a new toy…I keep finding new things and options. So fun 🙂 You are going to want one of your own after you tinker with his a bit 😀 The storage thing was such a big issue…I am so glad I listened to the Hubby (shhh…don\’t tell him 🙂

      Thanks so much for coming by Erin!

    Not gonna lie. I'm pretty jealous right now. LOL. I still have the iPhone 4 although I'm seriously considering taking Verizon up on their Trade-In deal. How much bigger is the 6? I can't decide if I should get the 6 Plus. I'm worried it will be too big.

    • MrsTee Post author

      I would. It is definitely a big difference from the 4: the size, the speed is amazing and the updates and features. I’m loving the thumbprint thing. The 6 is a bit bigger than the 4 but you can get used to it. I wouldn’t get the Plus because that is a full inch bigger and I think that would just be too much.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Woot! Woot! I don’t know if I would have been so anxious if it weren’t for my lack of storage but I am definitely enjoying all the new stuff 😀

    • MrsTee Post author

      Boooo! LOL…I still love you but I just can’t get used to androids at all. I think I’ll be #TeamiPhone for life! Thanks for coming by Lou 😀

    I got to the AT&T store Friday at 7am (they opened at 8) and was out the door with my new iPhone 6 (64 GB in Space Grey) by 8:30! There were people who had camped out over night to be first in line

    • MrsTee Post author

      That’s awesome! i actually never buy when they first come out because I’m always nervous about the bugs…but I was overdue and I had to have the storage for Bloggy Bootcamp…LOL I’m glad you got in and out without the need to campus 😀

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Carrie! I do to…first I was going to get Silver because I rarely wear or do anything gold but it’s definitely growing on me 😀 No they aren’t! That’s why I was so glad the release lined up with my upgrade eligibility…I am the lone surviving iPhone user in my home…and I’m okay with it. I hate androids! LOL
