iPhone 6 Plus Owners Use Twice As Much Data As iPhone 6 People

The large screen on the iPhone 6 Plus saw it become the most in-demand phone Apple has ever released, but that big display has a darker side. Analysis of mobile traffic by Citrix suggests that iPhone 6 Plus owners chew through twice as much data as iPhone 6 owners.

That figure comes from Citrix’s latest Mobile Analytics Report, which analyses mobile data usage across Citrix’s user base. It’s no surprise that larger-screened Apple owners might well consume more video, but it’s a little surprising that moving from a 4.7-inch to a 5.5-inch screen makes such a difference.

The lesson? If you’re buying a bigger phone, make sure you have a decent data allowance.
