During and after yesterday’s announcement, you may have seen various memes created by the Android faithful depicting just how they felt about the iPhone 6. Rather than rely on a vocal minority of die-hard fanboys, we thought it timely to get an actual sampling of how users feel about the iPhone 6. As it turns out, team Android may actually be pretty mixed.
If there’s one thing Apple currently lacks, it’s a good social layer to their various offerings. Perhaps to satiate our need to be digitally social, Apple is reportedly close to purchasing the nearly four-year-old Path. Insiders say the deal may already be done, too.
Apple Pay is Apple’s answer to mobile payments, in which they aim to have us leave the plastic at home and use an iPhone for all our payments. To wit, it’s pretty profound; transaction tokens instead of card info flying around, info housed in a secure element within the phone — it’s great. A new report tells us just how Apple will make sure it’s good for them, too.
There’s no reason why you can’t go out and pick up more iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus cases than you know what to do with. It’s like collecting baseball cards. What are you going to do with all those baseball cards anyway? They can’t protect your iPhone 6 - they can’t protect your iPhone 6 Plus either!
At today’s Apple event, we finally got to see all the things we’ve been anticipating and expecting. The Apple Watch — formerly and unofficially the iWatch — was announced, as were two new iPhones.

Releasing the iPhone 6 and its slightly larger sibling, the iPhone 6 Plus for Apple means pushing a new pricing structure on the world. While the past several releases for new iPhones meant simply replacing the top iPhone with a newer one, this time around it’s different. Things have gotten larger.
Encouraging money out of your wallet has seldom been an issue for Apple Stores, but Apple Pay is hoping to make it even easier, streamlining the mobile payments process and eventually making credit cards something you leave safely at home. Launching on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as on the Apple Watch, the new payments system slips its way into your Passbook while borrowing Touch ID for security. We grabbed some hands-on time to see just how easy it could really be.
