    Will iPhone 6+ modify your usage patterns with iPads or worse negate the need for an iPad?

    I have an iPad Air and preordered the iPhone 6 4.7". I'm debating selling my iPad and getting the 5.5" iPhone 6 Plus instead so I can use it and my rMBP equally.

    No I do think that I will get more use out of the larger phone when out and about since I would after shy away fro trying to compose an email on such a small screen.

    Now about that possible 12" iPad... ;)

    My 5S already negates my iPad Mini use. If I need anything bigger, I just use my rMBP. iPad usage is so forced for me, so I'm just selling it.

    6 or 6 Plus would definitely strengthen my decision on selling my iPad.

    Not at all. 5.5" would still be too small for reading comics full page.

    I was gonna go with with a plus but since I already have a mini with retina I decided to go with the 6, I love my mini and didn't want to neglect it if I would of gone the plus route that probably would of happened. I feel they will all get equal use as well as that watch when it comes out next year!

    Depends on how wide you define your use niche (and how much money you have). There are folks on this forum who have an iPad Air and iPad Mini.. justifying the Air as perfectly sized for the couch/ bed and Mini for the patio chair.

    Do not have an ipad but agree w/ this. 5.5 is a good gap b/w my phone and laptop. I don't want 15 different devices.

    iPhone 6+ vs iPad

    I'm good with my iPad Air. I got the 6 plus. But if it's great to view on my 6 plus, then it's even better on my iPad Air. IPad Air when I'm home. Anywhere else, iPhone 6 plus. 4+ inches is still a big difference.

    5.5" 16:9 screen can't compare with a 9.7" 4:3 screen. There is still a lot of ease of use when it comes to a full size iPad, even the mini.

    Nope. iPad > iPhone. These new iPhones don't change that equation.

    i sold my iPad Air to upgrade to the 6+. I've barely been using my iPad and it's 16gb haven't been enough, so I was planning to upgrade to a 32gb iPad Mini. After looking at the 6+ i've decided an 128gb version would be perfect for me. I've barely been using my iPad as it is. I usually just grab my iPhone or my rMBP if I need anything so I really don't miss it.

    I have both Note 2 and a shared iPad Air (with my gf). Reason: I want to enjoy both system, but I'm rarely on iPad (except for gaming or reading at home). So, when I get my iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air will be for my gf's officially. :cool:

    No but it may negate my need for my android devices. I might actually use my iPhone now. I'll still always use my air at home

    I reckon the iPad will still be better for watching twitch.tv. It'll be doable on the 6+ but is a pain on my 5S. IMO.

    I considered selling my retina Mini and getting 6+, but ended up going for a 6 and keeping the Mini. I use the iPad in landscape mode a lot of the time, and the 16:9 aspect ratio of the 6+ means your Safari browsing would be very letterboxed.

    No intentions of selling my iPad, which I use for magazines, internet browsing, videos.

    I preordered a Plus and I have an iPad Air, I will most likely sell it because it doesn't get a lot of use. My phone is always on me and I typically end up just using that, I am pretty excited for the larger screen.

    I have a mini retina and an air. I ordered a 6 Plus and I expect it to replace my mini.

    This is why I don't like tablets. Sometimes I hardly use my iPad, my sister uses it. I prefer something compact. And when I'm home, I normally use my Laptop instead. But I do see how it would make an impact on other people. But tablets are just not for me.
    I'm waiting for the Surface Mini though to replace my laptop. That's a tablet I'd like.

    I'll use my Plus but keep my 4 iPads so my family uses them and NOT my phone! :D

    Same here, I just found that tablets and smartphones do basically the same thing, so why would I want two devices that I to make changes to and update? If I got a new app on my phone, I then went and installed it on my tablet and vice versa. I ended up using my phone 98% of the time and my tablet just stayed in my closet.

    I was debating getting the iPad Mini, but why not just get a 6+ and be done with it? It's the same thing for me as when the iPhone 3G was out, I could either get a phone and an iPod Touch or get one that does both.

    True thing. I totally lose interest in tablets since a phone does everything a tablet does. Even watching YouTube I prefer my phone. Tablet may be better when watch TV shows/ movies but if I have time to watch, I'll just watch on my TV.
