Since the release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, developers have been on the move to update their apps to support the larger displays. Even though Apple made it so apps upscale to the larger displays automatically, there are still tweaks and changes most apps need to run smoothly.

Although the popular messaging app WhatsApp hasn't been refreshed for the larger displays, Facebook updated Messenger with native iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus support. Messenger 13.0 came with release notes that simply stated "Now updated for iPhone 6", meaning that the enlarged Camera Roll bug and a security flaw, which caused more expensive calls through the app, have been tweaked and fixed.

Another important app that was updated today for for the iPhone 6 models was Amazon's Kindle. Kindle 4.5.1 includes the support for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, along with various bug fixes and stability improvements. Amazon updated the Kindle less than 24 hours after the public release of iOS 8 with notification center widgets, which included shortcuts to recently read books.

Both Facebook Messenger and Amazon Kindle are free in the app store. A bit of a side note, Amazon recently launched its Kindle Unlimited service at $9.99 per month, which is basically the Netflix of e-books and audiobooks.
