    Will Safari on the 6 Plus default to mobile sites or will load the full website like the iPad?

    Hopefully, tomorrow when people start receiving their devices and reporting back, someone will give a definitive answer to your question. If I had to 'guess', I'd say it 'll default to mobile web viewing.

    Very often, web sites have codes to detect it is coming from a mobile devices and automatically send you to their mobile sites.

    Hopefully your speculation is incorrect but I believe you're right. It's no where near a deal breaker for me, but I was hoping Safari on the 6 Plus would be like the iPad.

    Safari on my ipad defaults to the mobile site pretty much all the time.

    Interesting. Many of the sites I visit on my iPad load in the full site.

    I haven't tested this and I don't know if the apps need to be updated to take advantage of it, but I thought I remember from the iOS8 keynote that 3rd party apps could now use the Nitro javascript engine and perform as well as Safari. Some of those browser apps let you set the identification string to a desktop browser for those sites that redirect to a mobile site. Doesn't help much until we can set a default browser app, but it might be something to look at.

    I also wonder if the 6 plus will have more info on the screen versus the 6 when we use safari, Is it gonna be the same info but bigger? I hope Apple takes advantage of all the pixels and screen size so we can have more on the screen.

    More content will be displayed on the Plus.

    No, it won't.
    That sucks. But doesn't the screen size will replace the iPad mini?

    The ipad Mini's screen is still significantly larger.

    I haven't tried it out myself but I do believe you can request the desktop site in Safari...

    When refreshing the history as well as the cookies and data on Safari and loading Wikipedia...it defaults to mobile. As does the iMore forum. I have to scroll all the way to the bottom and tap on "full site"
