Any ideas if they carry a 6 or 6 plus? I am curious which ones they themselves gravitate to and why. It would be an interesting poll to see what apple execs and regular employees themselves (not retail store folk) or even their family members are carrying.

You could always email Tim Cook and ask him directly instead of speculating and trying to speak for them. Wouldn't be the first time Cook responds to a question like that, either.

Seems more likes that their assistants carry whatever device necessary to ensure they will be able to exercise their duties. These are extremely high level executives in one of the largest companies in the world we are talking about.

As a matter of fact I did send him an email. Asking the same questions.

He stated that he uses both when asked by a customer standing in line on launch day.

He most likely owns both and if he is a really good CEO, he probably has other OS phones in his other pockets.

He uses a Nokia 7210 for SMS and pizza order calls. Other than that, he probably uses a Mac.
He doesn't strike me as someone who plays around with smartphones...

There have been reports that say Ivy uses a Samsung S5 and he preordered the Galaxy Note 4.

Pretty sure Jony uses the 6. Marc Newson definitely does.
Guys have a hard time carrying the Plus in a pocket.

In a thread earlier this summer Tim Cook said he did most of his work on an iPad. Using this info, perhaps incorrectly, I would deduce that he favors the 6+, but uses both.

His preorder fell through, however, due to Samsung's website not opening preorders until 3 hours later.

Ivy is already in line for the Note 4.

What if they are using an Android phone? ;) Just kidding.
Few days back I was reading some where he is using 6 Plus.

You're joking. They probably have Vertu phones on the sly. They are among the few who are rich enough and mug enough to buy them. Come to think about it, the way their products are going at present Apple will be the "poor" man's Vertu soon.

What he said above. Useless post and polls.
