Here’s what Apple Pay will look like

With an iOS 8 update (yeah, another one) coming sometime soon, Apple Pay is set to make its debut. Believed to hit right around October 18 — like, the time OS X Yosemite rolls in — Apple Pay will let iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users pay for good with a tap of their phone. Training materials seem to have been leaked, and show us a bit more about how Apple Pay works, and what we can expect to see on our phones.

It might be time to kiss the iPod goodbye

It might be time to kiss the iPod goodbye

Apple’s latest event is happening next week, and we’re all fairly certain what we’re getting. New iPads are likely on the horizon, and we’re expecting something in the way of Mac and iMac to come as well. Though we’re not expecting apple to unleash that massive iPad Pro we’ve been hearing about just yet, there’s good reason to think another of their products is falling by the wayside yet again.

The "editorial debut" of the Apple Watch in China will be with Vogue China, complete with a cover story and modeling by supermodel Liu Wen. We previously caught Liu Wen and the watch last month, finding her credentials powerful then as well - one of the top-paid models in the world, having worked with Chanel, Calvin Klein, and Victoria’s Secret in the relatively recent past - and likely the future as well.
