    Does anyone know if this will be added in the future? As of right now there are "iPhone" apps and "iPad" apps. The iPhone 6 plus is close enough to the iPad mini IMO.

    Well, no one who knows can tell you that. Biggest problem right now is all iPads are a 4:3 aspect ratio so they wouldn't fit on an iPhone screen properly, and most games use custom UIs so they cannot rely on Apple's controls to do autosizing. I suspect games will be written with layouts specifically for the 6 Plus when appropriate, but you won't be able to run current iPad layouts on your 6.

    Good catch, I forgot about the change in aspect ratio!
