A little circular menu will pop up, letting you record your message, so you can send a snippet from the Kanye concert that your friend is having supreme FOMO about.

Warning: Just make sure you don’t send an accidental selfie with this feature. IT HAPPENED TO ME.

A larger iPhone means it’s harder to get a good handle on it, so get used to double-tapping.

You’ll have to set up your medical profile first by going to the new Health app and tapping the “Medical ID” link in the lower righthand corner. Add pertinent information like blood type and allergies.

Just hit the “Details” link in the upper righthand corner of your message. It’s at least two steps less than dropping and sending a pin.

On the iPhone 6, the battery is 50% more efficient, which means that this kind of constant motion tracking will NOT drain your battery the way it would on your 5s.

14. Swap out your default search engine in Safari to DuckDuckGo, a crowd-funded search engine that doesn’t track your data or clutter up your results with sponsored ads.
