6 must have apps on your iPhone 6/6S

What would smartphones be without apps that take advantage of their features and that turn our favorite gadgets into personal assistants, entertainment devices and into serious help when it comes to serious stuff, like work. The iPhone 6/6S are some of the most popular smartphones at this point, and it is understandable given the fact that they are quite powerful, good-looking and iOS 9 users can enjoy lots of great apps on their smartphones. We tried to make a short list of the best free apps you should have on your iPhone 6/6S.


The messaging app is one of the most popular ones amongst iPhone 6/6S users. Everyone likes to keep in touch with their friends and family, and sometimes the SMS allowance granted by our carriers just isn’t enough. WhatsApp allows users to send text messages and photos over WiFi or cellular data connection instead of using the SMS plan of your carrier. There is no size limitation either, so you can send as many and as large pictures as you would like, and this way you will be able to share all your favorite moments with your friends and family.



This is the perfect app for those iPhone6/6s users who really like exercising, and by exercising, we mean running and cycling. Strava will track the users’ runs and rides with GPS, also delivering key stats like distance, pace, speed, elevation gained and calories burned. The app also tracks heart rate, power, and cadence data from ANT+ and Bluetooth LE sensors. The more competitive of us can also compare their results with the ones of their friends and they can keep score of their previous runs and rides, so they will be able to work harder to improve their stats. A Premium version of the app is also available for those who would like to get additional features.


Spotify Music

Thos who like to exercise usually also like to listen to music while doing so and this is why Spotify is one of the most preferred apps by iPhone 6/6S users. The application brings all your favorite jams to your smartphone, turning your smartphone into a true jukebox. The basic version of the app allows users to listen to music, with ads, but those who wish for an undisrupted audio experience can opt for the Spotify Premium, which will not only ensure an ad-free experience but will also enable users to download tunes in order to listen to them later.


Evernote Scannable

This particular app will certainly not amaze everyone, but those who desperately need a scanner once in a while will definitely see its value. Evernote Scannable allows users to automatically capture high-quality scans anywhere. All users need to do in order to have a more than decent scan of a document is to point their camera towards the document, or whiteboard they need to capture, and the app will make sure that the image will be clear and sharp. The resulted images can be shared with coworkers, friends, family members, and users will also be able to edit them. Scans will automatically be saved to the smartphone for 30 days.

Thanks to this app, all the notifications and messages from your iPhone 6/6S will pop up on your computer. To some, it might seem a useless app, but for those who work a lot on their computer and don’t really have the time to check their smartphones often enough can come in really handy. Of course, showing your messages on the screen of your computer is not everything Pushbullet does. It also allows users to send files and links from their computer to their smartphone and follow things you care about and receive lightning fast notifications.



For those who are article-addicts, the Pocket app is definitely a must-have. With this app, users can save articles on their smartphones or other iOS devices so they can read them later. This way, users will be able to read something they like even when they don’t have access to the internet. Long waits in train stations can become a lot more pleasant if you have something good to read. Users can also sync all the devices they have Pocket installed on, so they can access the same articles from any of them.


Of course, these aren’t the only apps you should install on your iPhone 6/6S, but these are the ones which can come in the handiest for starters. There are a lot of great apps in the App Store, some of them free, some you’ll have to pay for. Everyone can find something useful and definitely something fun.
