Apple Pay: iPhone 6 maker enters mobile payments realm (0)

Another big announcement Apple made today is the company's leap into mobile payments. Apple Pay makes use of NFC technology for contact-free payments and is available in iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in the form of a dedicated chip called Secure Element. The system integrates with Apple's Passbook app, which was originally launched with iOS 7, as well as with Touch ID for added security. Users will set up and manage their Apple Pay accounts through iTunes. Since Apple Pay makes use of a mobile payment technology that is already available worldwide, merchants do not have to worry about acquiring a new system just to accommodate payments made through the new iPhones and the Apple Watch. In the US, over 220,000 merchants currently accept contactless payments, and Apple has partnered up with big brands including Macy's, Walgreens, Staples, and McDonald's. Apple insists that the company will not collect any personal data from payments made through Apple Pay. To keep your credit and debit cards secure, Apple Pay makes use of one-time unique numbers used specifically for each transaction. Apple explains: "The actual card numbers are not stored on the device nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your iPhone or Apple Watch. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique number using your Device Account Number and instead of using the security code from the back of your card, Apple Pay creates a dynamic security code to securely validate each transaction."

Apple unveils Apple Watch (0)

Just after revealing the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has introduced the long-speculated iWatch but in a different name: the Apple Watch. A smartwatch and wearable fitness device in one, the Apple Watch requires a connection with iPhone 5 or newer models and works with Apple's newly-introduced payment system Apple Pay. It will be available in early 2015, starting at $349. In his introduction, Apple CEO Tim Cook explained that the watch is a customizable timepiece," allowing it to "connect and communicated directly from your wrist" and work seamlessly with the iPhone. Although the Apple Watch comes with a touch screen, the device comes with a digital crown on the right side (much like your usual wristwatch) for extra functionality. The screen can differentiate between a touch and a press, but it will not recognize "pinch to zoom," as Cook explained that gesture covers the content and obstructs your view. The smartwatch comes in three collections and a whole range of faces, which users can customize according to his or her preference. Wearers can also choose between the traditional watch face in different designs and digital time, along with more options for personalization. One of the options features Mickey Mouse with his hands pointing at the hours and minutes, much like that wristwatch you probably had as a child. Another face design option is called "Astronomy," which displays the earth, the current moon phase, and the actual positions of the planets in the solar system. The Apple Watch also sports a custom-designed processor that puts an entire computer system in a single chip, as the company's senior vice president of design Jony Ive explained. It is powered with a "unique charging solution" at the back crystal, which requires no alignment or exposed contact. For customers who do not like wearing a large watch, there is also a smaller Apple Watch with matching smaller straps. The third in the Apple Watch collection features a polished case and a custom allow of stainless steel. Users can choose from six different straps, each with a different mechanism. Options include a sport band that can resist sweat and chemicals, as well as a leather strap made from soft quilted leather with concealed magnets for fastening and adjustment. There will also be an 18-karat gold "Apple Edition" watch, which is developed to be as twice as hard as regular gold.

Apple introduces iPhone 6, large-screen iPhone 6 Plus (0)

After months of speculation and product leaks, Apple has finally confimed what many gadget fans knew all along. The company announces two new iPhone models: the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, which CEO Tim Cook called "the best iPhones" Apple has ever produced. Both iPhones sport a glass front screen that curves around the side, meeting its anodized aluminum backing. The iPhone 6 comes with a 4.7-inch screen, compared to a mere 4-inch display of the iPhone 5S. Meanwhile, the iPhone 6 Plus has an even larger 5.5-inch screen, making it just as big as some of the smaller Android phones currently in the market. Both phones have a much thinner profile: 6.9mm for the iPhone and 7.1mm for the iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6 will be available to ship beginning September 19, with prices starting at $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 64GB, and $399 for a whopping 128GB configuration. It comes with a two-year carrier contract. The iPhone 6 Plus will likely to have the same retail launch date, with a $100 jump on all models and the same two-year contract. Apart from the larger screens, Apple introduces new features in the new iPhones, such as a "brand new gesture" that slides the whole display down to access notifications at the top of the phone just by double-tapping the screen. Also, its iSight autofocus sensor can now be used in FaceTime and other video-conferencing apps. The new Apple phones come with the new 64-bit AB processors with two billion transistors, which is twice as many as the iPhone 5S's A1 chip. This allows for 25 percent faster performance and up to 50 percent more efficient graphics performance. Their battery life is also improved. Both devices could last for up to 50 hours of audio playback and 11 hours of video watching. Apple is also selling silicone and leather cases to fit into the new iPhones.

Report: Apple iPhone 6 announcement scheduled for Sept 9 (0)

Various news reports have had conflicting details on when Apple would officially held its iPhone 6 announcement. After recent rumors claim the company plans to push its event to October, a new report says that Apple has schuduled the announcement for September 9. Apple CEO Tim Cook already hinted of upcoming product releases during the company's earnings conference call in July. The news first broke out in tech blog Recode, which has a consistent record of revealing when Apple's fall event would be held. That report also dismissed other rumors about Apple postponing the announcement of its supposedly larger iPhones for next year, claiming that it would launch both the 4.7- and the 5.5-inch versions of the smartphone. Both of those iPhones run on new A8 processors, according to Recode. The Wall Street Journal also joined in the "guess the date of iPhone 6 announcement" competition by citing sources "familiar with the matter" pegging the event as September 9.

Apple iTime patent approved (0)

Apple has yet to announce if it would indeed launch a wearable device, but judging from the recenly-released reports from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, it seems that the company has been planning to make one. The USPTO granted on Tuesday a patent to Apple that involves a smartwatch concept, which the documents refer to as "iTime." It is also revealed that the Apple iTime patent was originally filed exactly three years ago, an indication that the company behind the iPhone and iPad has been considering about developing a smartwatch for some time now. The patent application dates back to a time when Apple has yet to release iPhone 4S and Siri, which explains why the Apple iTime is actually a "smart wristband," wherein the watch contains circuitry and sensors. The iTime acts as a docking station of sorts for a small media player like an iPod Nano. The application comes with an alternate design, wherein the Apple iTime is illustrated as a stand-alone smartwatch that does not rely on a docked media player for its central unit. It looks like a fitness tracking band and the early smartwatches like the Pebble. Will we ever see the Apple iTime on a retail store near you? We shall see. Source: Forbes Read More

Apple introduces iOS 8 (0)

Apple has formally unveiled the latest version of its mobile operating system for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch. The iOS 8 has several new features and functionalities, a lot of which were already available on Android for years. The company has presented the latest iOS during this Worldwide Developers Conference. And while Apple may have lifted some features from Android, its presentation shows the iOS 8 has something extra. For instance, interactive notifications--allowing users to perform tasks by tapping on the alerts--appear straight from the lock screen, which is not the case on Android. The app-to-app sharing function, which used to be available on a few iOS-approved apps, is now applicable to all apps. Apple gives this function its signature touch by allowing third-party app developers to create photo filters within the main Photos app (a feature borrowed from the "Lenses" function found in Window Phone), as well as extensions like text translation or document watermarking. The iOS 8 also adds a row of word predictions above its software keyboard, whcih Apple borrowed from Google Keyboard. It will also allow support for third-party software keyboards, which Android already allowed. The iCloud now supports all file types, enabling users to access their files and folders across all Apple devices with ease. Android users already enjoyed this using the mobile OS's integration with Google Drive. Other features found in iOS 8 include a HomeKit for simpler home automation, a HealthKit that unifies all your health tracking apps, and other functions aimed at making all Apple products seamlessly connected.

Apple set to acquire Beats Electronics (0)

Word on the street is that Apple is about to acquire headphone maker and audio company Beats Electronics for a reported $3.2 billion. Sources told the Financial Times that the acquisition could be announced by next week. If the Beats deal pulls through, this could become Apple's largest acquisition to date. Both companies declined to comment on the matter as of this posting. Rapper and producer Dr. Dre and music executive Jimmy Iovine co-founded the Santa Monica, California-based Beats Electronics seven years ago. We can say the company started the high-end headphones craze with its Beats by Dr. Dre line. It has also launched Beats Music, a premium music streaming service, earlier this year.
