    So per this http://www.macrumors.com/2014/09/22/iphone-6-and-6-plus-charging/ , I did some measurements with my iPad Air and iPhone 6.

    Measurements are done with screen turned off.

    iPad Air (74% charge)
    iPhone charger: 5.05V @ 0.9A
    iPad charger: 5.05V @ 1.8A

    iPhone 6 (61% charge)
    iPhone charger: 5.05V @ 0.9A
    iPad charger: 5.05V @ 1.05A

    So my question is - why the iPhone 6 charging amperage is so small when using an iPad charger?

    Try from a lower charge. Batteries draw less current as they approach their max capacity.
