I think we're approaching the time when it will make sense for Apple to stop supporting legacy 32-bit apps.  The transition from 32-bit apps to 64-bit apps began with 10.4 Tiger in 2005 and was reasonably complete with 10.7 Snow Leopard in 2009.
I don't know whether or not the A7 can support Apple Pay. I hope and expect the new iPod Touch to support Apple Pay, so perhaps it will get an A8 (if the A7 cannot support Apple Pay).
My guess is that the 4th gen Apple TV will be physically capable of streaming 4K content, but that it will not initially be supported due to lack of progress in contract negotiation with the content owners.
Wrong direction.  I cannot reach _across_ the screen of the iPhone 6, let alone up and down it.
The iPhone 6 is too large for me to use one-handed, so I won't replace my iPhone 5S until Apple release a 4" iPhone that supports Apple Pay.
Certainly any new or revised iPhone will include both TouchID and an NFC chip for Apple Pay. The only data connection needed for Apple Pay is that via the NFC chip.  Wifi/cellular is not required, so a revised iPod Touch could certainly be built by Apple to support Apple Pay.
I have not seen any rumors that Skylake-H (the specific Skylake parts suitable for a 15" MacBook Pro) will be released during 2015.  I have no reason to believe that a Skylake MBP will be released before early-2016.
I actually do know that, directly from someone involved in the decision. I'm happy with my iPad Air, but the smartest person I know wants a 13" iPad.
The price will drop, not by $500 but maybe by $200, when Apple finally drop what's left of the legacy discrete GPU -- either this year or next year -- from the MBP line.
By that logic, anyone who doesn't own their own supercomputer is not a power user.
