    How does Metal work exactly? I upgraded from a 4S which didn't have metal. And which games support metal?

    Game support would be poor at this time point, and I highly doubt there would be a bunch of new games supporting metal.

    I heard Epic Zen Garden supports metal. But I still don't understand exactly what it does

    I think most games designed specifically for 5s, 6 and 6+ support metal. And soon in iOS 9 the OS will use Metal to increase its performance. It's just a more efficient way of utilizing the graphics chip. Less overhead.

    Don't forget that iOS 9 will to take advantage of Metal, so not just App Store apps anymore. According to Apple, this should improve OS smoothness and performance.
