To get a better idea of the size of the new iPhones, ArsTechnica s Aurich Lawson has come up with a rather simple solution. Lawson used official press photos of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus to create wireframe drawings of the two devices. You can print the drawings, and cut around the outlines to get an exact replica of the new iPhones. The cutouts will be useful in answering questions like, Will it fit in one hand? or Can I keep it in my trouser pockets, without busting the seams of my pants?
