Kindle for iOS Updated for the iPhone 6

iPhone 6 owners, take note.

Amazon rolled out a maintenance update today for the Kindle app. According to the changelog they did not add any additional features, but they did add support for Apple's latest smartphone.  You can find the app in iTunes.

Apple reported selling 10 million iPhones over the launch weekend, so I'm sure today's news is going to make at least a couple million iPhone owners very happy.

The iPhone 6 comes in two sizes, including with a 4.7" smaller screen and a small 5.5" screen (compared to 6" and 7" Android phablets, the iPhone 6 is small) with screen resolutions of 1334 x 750 and 1920 x 1080, respectively. These rather pricy phablets are outside of the price range of this blogger, but they have been providing some entertainment value. There are an unknown number of reports that the iPhone 6 Plus can bend if placed in a front pocket. Several bloggers have also demonstrated that it was possible to bend the 6 Plus using nothing more than their hands.

    ” Several bloggers have also demonstrated that it was possible to bend the 6 Plus using nothing more than their hands.”

    It’s also possible to lift every laptop or smartphone on the market over your head and drop it onto a concrete floor. The sensible response to both potential behaviors is the same:

    “Don’t do it.”
