    So when the speed tests came out for the iPad air 2 it showed that the iPhone 6 was a little bit faster than the 6 plus. Is that true? And what can't Apple just put the A8X chip in the iPhone 6 and plus?

    Yes, the 6 is typically marginally faster because it has to drive a lot less pixels vs the plus with its higher resolution display. Apple didn't put the A8X into these phones because they really didn't need to.

    The iPad needs to start competing with laptops and the iPhone needs to remain power efficient to keep longer battery life.

    Yes the 6 is a little faster than the 6 Plus. Only because it's CPU AND GPU are exactly the same for both phones.

    Also historically... The "X" versions have been reserved for the iPads.
