Over the years, consumers have been pleading for Apple to produce large iPhones. Well, their wish was answered last September when Apple released their first ever phablet, the iPhone 6 Plus.
Then again, critics were loud in claiming that there is no need for the iPhone 6 Plus with the iPad Mini around. Well, there is actually a big difference in size between both devices with the former offering a 5.5” screen while the latter has 7.9” to offer.
In other words, it is still possible to keep the iPhone 6 Plus in some pockets while there is no way to carry the iPad Mini around without a bag or sacrificing one hand.
Furthermore, consumers are able to insert a SIM card into the iPhone 6 Plus and enjoy mobile data whereas the iPad Mini requires a Wi-Fi hotspot being activated.
As such, it is best for consumers to settle for the iPhone 6 Plus instead of the tablet. Even the statistics shows that the iPad Mini sales drop by 14% after the introduction of Apple’s first ever phablet.
