iPhone owners: Have you ever noticed sometimes when you receive a call you have an option to swipe to answer, while other times you’re given “accept” and “decline” buttons?
We saw this tweet on Friday and it got us thinking.
IS IT JUST ME CAUSE I CANT FIGURE OUT WHY I CAN CHOOSE TO DECLINE SOMETIMES AND SOMETIMES I CANT. pic.twitter.com/SqwN6xgaHW

When Apple introduced the iPhone 6 Plus, it said the device was superior to the standard iPhone 6 in a few key ways. First, it featured optical image stabilization, while the iPhone 6 only supported digital image stabilization. Next, the iPhone 6 Plus featured a 1920-by-1080 display, offering 401 pixels per inch, while the iPhone 6 came with “only” a 1334-by-750 display, with a pixel density of “just” 326 pixels per inch.
To support the additional power draw of the larger, higher pixel-density display, the iPhone 6 Plus features a 2915 mAh battery, which offers far more capacity than the 1810 mAh battery in the regular iPhone 6.
Sprint subsidiary Virgin Mobile is no longer selling Apple’s iPhones in its retail stores and it is unclear if the United States’ biggest prepaid wireless carrier is going to restock Apple’s devices on its shelves anytime soon.
Previously, Virgin Mobile’s website featured a range of unsubsidized iPhones for sale. Until recently, the carrier had a lineup of iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, and iPhone 4S models up for grabs. However, Virgin Mobile announced over the holidays that it would not be selling Apple’s newest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus but did not explain the decision.
