    Default iPhone 6 4.7 will be my first iPhone. Help decide the Apps and Accessories I should get

    All,

    I decided with this forums help that I will get and iPhone 6 4.7” for my first iPhone.

    Since I never had an iPhone and have no idea what would be the best accessories or apps to get to fully enjoy my new mobile. I thought I would ask the iMore and its large community what they would recommend so I can make my transition from another smartphone easier (Wow, long winded sentence).

    Thanks,
    A.B.

    That's a hard question to answer without knowing your smartphone needs. Having said that, iOS 8 May be sufficient as-is in addition to the Windows apps you mentioned in your other thread. Anyway, some of my favorite apps are as follows:

    Reeder 2
    Tapatalk
    Clear and/or Any.Do
    DataVault
    Tweetbot 3
    Skype
    Evernote
    Dropbox
    Drafts
    iA Writer
    Writing Aid
    PDF Expert
    Scanner Pro
    Documents by Readdle
    ....to name a few...

    What are your interests? What do you see yourself doing on your iPhone? Business? Games? Photography? Social media?

    I am trying to be open to any new or possibly additional activities I may be able to use with IOS. I will be downloading all the Microsoft apps (big user of them) I have used with my other platform. iPhone 6 being new to me also has new possibilities.

    I am a runner, biker, camper, and etc…….

    I have looked at Amazon and Ottobox already has a case for it. Not sure if that would be a good case (looks heavy).

    Thanks,

    Never really did social media, but may try some associated with my outside activities. Photography is always important with a father of 2.

    Buy Camera+. It's great for editing and enhancing photos. Phonto is great for writing text on photos.

    For the accessories portion, I would recommend an official Apple iPhone 6 case. The offer good protection, a great fit, and great build quality.

    Apps wise, I would recommend:
    -Passible: Password manager application
    -Find My iPhone: If you choose to use iCloud and you end up losing your phone, this will help you find it
    -Flipboard: Magazine-like app that allows you to connect any social networks of your choice and find any topics that interest you (running, camping etc) and have it all in one handy magazine format.

    That's about it, but if I think of any others, I'll post them
     iPhone 6-64 GB Space Gray T-Mobile 
     iPad Mini with Retina Display-16 GB Wi-Fi Space Gray 

    Apple_iOS,

    The Find My iPhone sounds like a good feature. Do I need any other HW (Mac or iPad)?

    Welcome to iMore AB Lambert

    It's always recommended to familiarize yourself with the OS first and then build up your apps according to your needs

    The App Store is large so think about buying the largest capacity you can afford

    As long as you have an iPhone with iCloud turned on, you can track it from any device, whether it is a PC, Mac, iPad, or iPod touch. On PC, go to iCloud.com and login. From there it will track your devices and show where they are.

    So the short answer is yes, you do have to have another device, and it can be either a PC, Mac, iPad, or iPod touch

    Wouldn't it be more sensible to wait until the specs, price, release date, appearance, and so on of the new iPhone are known before making a decision?

    I'm not saying the new iPhone will be bad, but I don't see how you can possibly make any worthwhile judgement yet.

    I assume you are being sarcastic, right?

    I'm sorry but I don't understand why anyone would decide to buy a product before they know its specs, price, appearance, etc. Don't misunderstand - I'm not saying the iPhone 6 (if that is the next version) won't be good. It may well be, but I don't see any advantage in prejudging it before any facts are known.

    Check out Fitbit.

    Also I'm addicted to My Fitness Pal.

    Those are good apps for fitness enthusiasts.

    I've found that an over reliance on biggest specs usually denotes hidden deficiencies. Performance is very often preferable to big specs.

    I haven't got huge numbers of apps.

    It's probably best to think about your activities and see how a phone could help you with them.

    You can visit the App Store and browse the apps. Use the search bar to find what you need. There are many free good apps. But some do have a price. Download AppsGoneFree and it will show you apps that have gone free for a short time. Many are good.
