I tried out Apple’s largest iPhone — and it made me love my iPhone 6S even more (AAPL)

Several months ago, one of my worst tech fears was realized: I cracked my iPhone screen. In three years of owning iPhones, I’ve never cracked my screen or significantly damaged my phone in any way. So when my iPhone 6S broke my fall on the subway steps recently — an embarrassing and slightly painful way to crack my screen — I was bummed to say the least.

I ended up using the phone for about a week, swapping in… Read More
