I'm still waiting on my iPhone 6. I actually got a 6+ for testing, since it is the most different from my current iPhone. To be honest, I've been pretty slow to upgrade because I have small jean pockets.

However, last week, I met with @heymarcbrown, the organizer of the Swift Brooklyn Meetup, who's been using an iPhone 6, and he mentioned that he now expects all apps to have swipe-to-go-back functionality.

While iPhone 6 might not seem like that big of a change from iPhone 5, it actually is a substantial change that requires us to adopt new user interactions in our iOS apps. Just adding auto-layout to an iPhone 5 app is not enough.
