    Hi, I am looking for a tripod that could be used with both iPhone 6s+ and possibly normal cameras. I am looking for one that is standard size (i.e. normal one rather than very small and short ones), not so expensive. Any good suggestion?

    Find yourself a tripod adapter for the iPhone, and choose the best regular tripod for your needs. That will leave you with the most flexibility.

    The most useful adapters are clamps that can hold smartphones of various sizes.

    The tripod extends to a maximum of 51", a bit more than four feet tall. Since I'm over six feet tall, that's way too short for a "full size" tripod. Since there's nothing particularly iPhone-related (the iPhone adapter is a separate accessory that can mount on just about any tripod), I wouldn't choose this one myself. The model I usually carry in my pack these days is the Manfrotto MKC3 - it extends to 60", weighs about 6 oz. more, and can be had for less than half the price of the model you've identified (I have three "full size" tripods of varying weight and features). You'll find that $150 can buy you a lot more tripod than is being offered at Apple.com.

    The mounting adapter looks OK, but I've never seen it in person. There's a lot more out there than is being sold by Apple.
