    It seems like a waste of such gorgeous screen. Rather than up scaling iPhone apps for 6+, they should down scale iPad apps for iPhone 6+.

    I just got the update today and it definitely looks awesome on the 6 Plus now.

    Looks good. Just wish they would have the split screen on the 6 plus like on the iPad.

    I think this feature will come in time for the 6 Plus.

    Instant messaging for multiple accounts. Works like Beejive, only with a competent developer behind it.

    Accounts for what? Messaging apps like WhatsApp and SnapChat?

    Thanks. I wouldn't have any use for that. All I use is iMessage and Facebook Messenger.

    There are still quite a few apps not updated. Paid $6.99 + tax for an app and ended up putting in for a refund, which I put in for immediately upon seeing it. I didn't even bother checking if it worked. That's just too much money for an app that the devs haven't even bothered to update properly.

    The best way Apple can force deva to update would be to make the apps not show up in the App Store on the phone if it isn't optimized for it and the user hasn't already paid for it.

    Android doesn't have this issue because the OS already scales apps properly regardless of screen size. Only the graphical assets are a huge issue there.

    It's hard to complain about free apps, but paid apps and those with lots of IAP really need to be updating their apps.

    Isn't that a bit harsh? The Devs are working on their apps and more get updated everyday. Most of the ones I use have been updated and not only did the Devs update the resolution, but they added functionality. I am guessing that as time goes by more and more apps will be updated. I am sure most Devs don't have teams and teams of developers working around the clock to update their apps.

    I would say if you are that against using an app that is not optimized, check the AppStore for the last update time and read the Whats new sections to see if the apps are updated.

    Used to be a big users of IM+, but as the years go by AIM and Yahoo messenger are used less and less. Between iMessage and FB Messenger you can pretty much hit everyone

    BUT... I still have it installed and it looks great...

    No. That's too damn expensive to wait. I'll use it to buy apps from devs that are more on the ball, thank you.

    Developers get paid when I buy their apps so no. I'm not being harsh at all. I've already stated free apps aren't really what I'm talking about.

    Before adding functionality the devs need to make the app display properly. It can bake cakes for me, but if it's an eyesore it's not worth my money.

    Time to reopen this thread.

    Are most major apps optimized for the 6 plus screen size now?

    Most apps seem to have been updated at this point but there are still some that have not been optimized for the larger screen yet, despite having received multiple updates in the past few months. The ones I use regularly are Income OK and the Mi Band app.

    "Most", as in more than 50%, probably are... but I still see a few of my "go to" apps that aren't yet updated.

    Appreciate your enthusiasm, but why are you posting jailbroken screenshots in a a thread about apps being/not being optimized for iPhone 6/6 Plus?

    Point is... Its not apps that are ugly or not being optimized its the limitation of apple not allowing it to happen. Developers are limited on unjailbroken phones. Jailbreak community has unlimited variations for theme, app icon sizes, shapes and colors as well as widgets. Blame apple not the developers for optimization freedom. Apps look ugly on the 6 Plus.
