Looked for a specific answer all over the net. No clear answer.

GSM. You need this IPSW (assuming you want to get iOS 8.4).

A1533 can be both GSM and CDMA(Verizon version is A1533) but they use the same iPhone6,1 ipsw. A way to check wether your device is GSM or CDMA is to look in Settings-General-About and see if there is an MEID in it. It is definitely GSM if there isn't one.
