    When your download has completed, you will have a new icon on one of your home screens.
    Not the first screen, but any of the other screens. You also have the option to tap Open in the App Store. However, it is important to note that the iPhone 6, by default, does not install any new application to the first or main home screen, other than Apple apps. For example, the new iPhone Watch application automatically installed to the main home screen, however, WhatsApp will not, it will install to any other home screen. If there is a space open on the home screen you can move it yourself. Let's tap open.
