    I currently have a Iphone 5 and going to be upgrading to the Iphone 6. Had a few questions to ask before i go out and buy it..

    a) i heard somewhere on youtube that the processor takes up half the space on the phone? is that true

    b) at my local telus store who i am with they sell the iphone 6 for 350 dollars 16 gig and then the 64 gig for 480 dollars. I currently own th 16 gig but registers as 12.6 but currently have 3.4 gigs of space on my phone. Besides the 32 gigs of extra space is there really much any difference between the 2.

    No, the Apple A8 processor does not take up half of the space on the iPhone 6, not even close.

    See the following link for an ifixit teardown that shows the internal components: https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/iPhone+6+Teardown/29213

    a) ardchoille50 already mentioned/answered this, but do you mean OS or actual hardware? If you mean OS, then again, its a no. iOS takes up about 4.5GB, so with the 16 gig version, you will be left with 11.5 gig (at least on my 6+)

    b) No, other than the extra storage, everything else is exactly the same.
