    There are a few apps that I have on iPad mini etc that are better than the iPhone version of the app. Can the iPhone 6+ run iPad apps ?

    Is it capable if Apple decided they wanted it to? Probably. Does it for people who are buying it? No. People keep forgetting the iPads and iPhones have different screen aspect ratios.

    No, maybe with a Jailbreak though, you could do this with iOS 7

    No. They are completely different resolutions AND aspect ratios. iPad is 4:3. iPhone is 16:9. Never going to happen.

    Although if the apps come from decent devs, they will already be working on taking advantage of the landscape view on the iP6+

    and an iPad is an iPad, not an iPhone, but the iPad CAN run the iPhone app.

    It's just a question, everyone stay calm..
