    My friend from Australia is visiting me and she has to bring a lot of presents back to her friends in Australia. I say:

    So, you're going to take the iPhone 6 back to Australia for your friends?

    VS

    So you're going to bring the iPhone 6 back to Australia for your friends?

    Are both okay?

    If you're talking to her in the USA, you would say "Are you going to take an iPhone 6 back to Australia?"
    If your friend was talking to her friends in Australia on the phone, they would ask "Are you going to bring an iPhone 6 back?"

    It seems odd to take one mobile phone for your friends. If she's only going to take one phone back then it's probably for one friend. If she wants to take presents for several of her friends, she would probably be asked if she's taking some iPhone 6s to Australia.
