iPhone 6 iOS 8.4 Update

Let's start with some important details for owners of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. 

If you haven't updated to iOS 8.4 and you've been looking to do so, now would be a great time to make your move. 

We've been using the iPhone 6 iOS 8.4 update on both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for a month plus now and we've come away impressed. Apple's bug fixes have eradicated several annoying bugs, we haven't run into any major problems, performance is holding up on both devices, we're enjoying Beats 1 Radio, and iOS 8.4 can be jailbroken.

It's an extremely solid release and it's one that we definitely recommend if you're a heavy iBooks user, if you're in need of stability or if you just want to try Apple Music for a few weeks. You might also want to move to it now because Apple's next iOS update could break the iOS 8.4 jailbreak.
