Fallout 4’s Pip Boy Accessory Won’t Fit iPhone 6+, Other Phablets
Not exactly a surprise.
Those users who are looking to get the limited edition version of Fallout 4, that comes with the Pip-boy accessory should prepare themselves if they are also owners of any kind of Phablet. Bethesda issued a recent blog release that made it clear the device won’t be able to be compatible with the iPhone 6 Plus and other larger smartphones.
The accessory is wearable on the wrist and has a special foam backed mount for people to actually put their smartphones, so they can use it like the character in the long running game series. Fans might already be out of luck because the limited edition version has already sold out in the United States and Canada but it will also only fit a few of the more popular phones.
“The Pip-Boy included will have foam inserts that fit iPhone 6, iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 4/4S, Samsung Galaxy 5, and Samsung Galaxy 4,” notes Bethesda. “In addition, using the customizable foam insert you should be able to fit most other popular smartphone devices.
The Samsung Galaxy Note will also not be able to fit this device, though Bethesda does note that the companion application will certainly be able to be used, even if people aren’t able to mess with it while wearing their phone on their wrist. The device comes with the game for a souped up $120. While the Limited Edition version might be sold out right now, you can still preorder the regular version of Fallout 4 which is due out November 10, 2015
