With Apple Pay and Apple Watch, I hope we're seeing the end of products labeled "i"-something.
So we can expect hear more comments of: "is that your iPhone 6 Plus, or are you just happy to see me?"Maybe that's why Apple hired all those fashion people -- to influence design trends so people won't blink at buying a ridiculously huge phone with no practical way to carry it.
And it will hopefully be thinner too ... way too bulky as it is now.
You've seen the 6 next to the 5S, right? It's height AND width. And you put your finger on it with the 4 ... we're comparing it to the 5, but I'm going from a 4 ... so it's really a big difference for what I'm used to and what I'd prefer out of a mobile device on the go ... it's a little thinner, but let's face it, all they did was add an antenna and a chip, and previous components have surely shrunk since the original 5. The Plus should be ridiculously spacious...
Has anyone seen this in sunlight? How bright is the display? Will you have to shade the watch in order to see the time outside? Is the watch dial lit all the time? Or do you have to press a button to see anything on the display?
I'm not one to say what Steve Jobs would or wouldn't do, but I do wonder if he would have approved this watch at its current bulk, or said to wait a year until they can get it slimmer. I think Apple had to release the iWatch now to fit with their iPhone 6 marketing plan. What better way to sell watches than to offer a revolutionary payment system through it as the only option for the iPhone 5 series which accounts for the largest installed base of iPhone users? It also...
I'm kind of surprised Apple didn't introduce inductive charging with the iPhone. After all, there's no real reason to plug in a lightning cable to an iPhone anymore for regular use. Maybe the 6s ...
I'm no better at looking into a crystal ball, but I don't believe this for a minute. If it were we would have seen chip and pin rolled out in this country years ago. Apple has a large installed based, but only the iPhone 6 users are really going to have his for the first year, and that's a tiny fraction of the installed base who will physically have the phones (and watches) and who will actually trust/use this technology. Higher end merchants will want to cater to this...
Yes, and so my question is, why not put phone capabilities in the mini too (or the air for that matter)? Apple seems fixated on using these devices with one hand, but only if a phone's built-in. They seem to be clueless at how many people are using them to make FaceTime, Skype, and other VOIP calls everyday using the cellular radios already built-in to many of the iPads sold. So what's with restricting the capabilities? Is it to force people who want a pad and a phone to...
The 5/5s/5c will all access Apple Pay with the Apple Watch. And it seems Apple Pay will work via the Internet, so that aspect of it may work without the Apple Watch. But frankly I think it's going to be moot. Most places most people shop will not b able to use Apple Pay for at least a year if not longer as the credit industry beat merchants over the head to upgrade. The one thing Apple has going for it is that it's customers are some of the wealthiest and most avid...
