Just as it says in title.. Ordered a 64gb Silver iPhone 6s Plus .. I don't know what apps I should immediately get once I receive the device. I am used to Android EcoSystem and my work phone is a note 5. Anything you guys can recommend

Thanks

What apps to get would largely depend on what you do for work and what your interests are. Searching in the App Store using keywords can get you started and maybe lead you in other directions as well. The possibilities are almost endless. Enjoy and welcome to the neighborhood!!

I would suggest starting with Apps which you might have used parallels versions of on Android, to 'smooth' the transition - first which comes to mind is SwiftKey which is a 'new' concept in iOS as Apple only has supported it since iOS 8

If you should need any help transferring content (such as contacts, message history, camera photos and videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts, and calendars) from your Android device to your iPhone, Apple makes an Android app designed specifically for that. You can find it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.apple.movetoios&hl=en.

Post a list of your most-used Android apps and we will post iOS equivalents. Listing my favorite apps would probably be useless to you. We need to know what you're interested in before we can make recommendations.

I was going to recommend Tweetbot 4 as well. The official Twitter app is free, if you don't want paid app.
