iPhone 6 Plus Consumes Twice As Much Data Than Other iPhones

Citrix has released a new mobile analytics report which includes a section that suggests that iPhone 6 Plus owners use far more data than other iPhone owners.

Apparently people who own the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus consume twice as much data as people who own the smaller iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 Plus data usage is also 10 times higher than on the iPhone 3GS.


iPhone 6 Plus subscribers generate the most data volume, double that of an iPhone 6. This increase impacts subscribers when choosing a new device — be careful to select a data plan that matches your super-sized screen.

Clearly the phablet sized iPhone 6 Plus shows data usage patterns more akin to tablet usage. For mobile operators, this increase provides an opportunity to shift subscriber Wi-Fi usage towards mobile networks.

So now you know why your monthly data plan is exhausted earlier than your previous phones.
