We’re just a couple of days away from Apple’s official launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and with that, more details emerge on what you’re getting when you unbox the phone. At the moment, we do know that the box will contain the usual stack of EarPods, Lightning connector and charger, since Apple is that predictable. What is a change though, is that it seems that Apple will bundle more software as part of your unboxing experience.
Retail Store employees are reportedly being trained on the apps that will be included on every iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. If you purchased a 16GB iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, you’ll see the usual list of Apps that we’ve seen for years. Now, if you’re purchasing the 64GB or 128GB iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, apparently you’ll also get apps like iMovie, GarageBand, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, and iTunes U. You can still download these if you’re rocking a 16GB variant of any iPhone, but it’s cool to see that you’ll at least save some time in loading these additional Apple-made iOS apps.
Missing on the list is iPhoto, which we know Apple will replace very soon for the new Photos app. The same can be said about services like iBooks as well, and hopefully more news will shed some light on the reasons why.
