Printable PDF Shows How iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus Fit in Your Hands


Yesterday, Apple unveiled two bigger iPhone models, which is apparently getting a lot of people confused about which model to pick when it drops for pre-order. Luckily, we now have a handy printable iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus “pre-order picker” put together by an AppleInsider reader, which may help you decide which iPhone model to pre-order on Friday.

This PDF file, when printed on standard 8.5″ x 11″ printer paper at 100% scale, will display the footprint of Apple’s current iPhone 5S alongside that of the larger 4.7″ iPhone 6 and the 5.5″ iPhone 6 Plus (shown above). It is best to print the PDF and then cut out the individual iPhone outlines so you can get a better idea of their size and how they feel in your hands, pockets or purse.

So if you do use this handy pre-order picker, let us know if it helped you decide which model to get.


  • Mike Fradette

    I’m leaning towards the 6 Plus, mostly for the larger screen, Optical Image Stabilzation (OIS), bigger battery, and landscape mode within certain apps.

  • Nick

    Man the iPhone 6 plus is enormous… Does it fit in a jeans pocket?

  • Parksy

    When the new sizes were just rumours I was leaning towards the 4.7″ version. After the announcement I wanted the 5.5″ version. After printing this, all I can say is the 5.5″ is huge. Not sure now since it definitely won’t fit in my pockey and I’m not into carrying a manbag.

  • Parksy

    If you were “normal” sizes and normal styles, I’m betting it isn’t fitting into your pocket. I may still preorder both and make my decision once I can physically see them.

  • Chris Zhu

    agreed, 4.7 it is for me

  • Nafizur

    These sizes are incorrect. I cut out the 5s and it did not match the original phone.

  • Horacio A. Coronel

    I printed it with no problems. The cut out fits perfectly my 5s. Check to print it without any scaling, border or fitting setting that can change the actual size of it.

  • Supacon

    The tablet-esque functionality and ability to read books and full webpages on a phone I always have with me is appealing. The higher resolution also was a draw until I realized that the phone has a 1920×1080 display that downscales from 1242×2208. In practice I doubt this would appear blurry, but it sounds less than ideal – a stopgap because Apple couldn’t source panels that were actually 1242×2208. This is a turnoff to me.

    That downscaling combined with the awkwardness of always carrying a phone that large, the awkwardness of one-handed use, and the extra $110 price premium are making me reconsider whether I actually want the iPhone 6 Plus.

    My dad is getting the Plus so if I order the regular 6 I can compare them side by side and see what feels better.

    For the first time, Apple has created a headache of a decision to make. Arggh!

  • Nafizur

    yep, that was the issue. i used fit to page rather than 100% scales. Size is good now.

  • J. W.

    Managed to fit a larger phone into my jeans pocket, so for me the answer is yes. Depends on the pants, though…

  • What paper size did you use? The 5s fit my phone perfectly.

  • FragilityG4

    Bigger screen means bigger battery drain … They’ll cancel each other out methinks.

  • Mark

    Yes.. wasn’t it just so much easier when there was only ONE shiny new tracking, I mean phone.. for the mass sheep to get every year.

  • neogeo

    If you wear skinny jeans, the 6 Plus won’t be for you!

  • Grant S

    Nope. Apple promises longer battery life with the 6 Plus. Battery is bigger.

  • Martin

    This pre-order picker was really useful as I was worried the 6 Plus would be too big. Turns out it’s just the perfect size for me!

  • Yeah it was pretty handy I must say!
