With Apple you always have to expect a few extra features you wish were included and this is done purposefully to make you want to upgrade next year. I think the 6 and 6+ are very good additions and are easily the biggest and best addition since the very first model. The increased screen size alone is a feature so many people have been waiting for and the reason it is selling so well. For next year I wouldn't mind seeing a reduced forehead and chin bezel area if they can...
Why even bother with stars when you don't show their face? If I had not known beforehand I doubt I would have known who it was. I would prefer a Stephen Colbert and Justin Timberlake ad with some song and comedy. Stephen is also a huge Apple fan in real life. 
I am not even sure how they compete. Who uses PayPal at all beyond places like Ebay or online? Yeah I know they have a card they issue and also a mobile card reader you can plug into your iPhone headphone port, but I doubt that is a big part of their business. And I don't remember them attacking Square when they entered those markets.    Does Apple Pay even have an ability to handle online transactions yet? 
With a 5K display Apple might offer a beefier GPU than usual on this update. 
This might be the 1st iMac to make me consider switching from my Mac Pro which is getting a bit old. With a new Mac Pro or a new iMac I will have the same issue with both in terms of migrating my four hard drives. Are there any reasonably priced but decent quality external enclosures to house my four Mac Pro drives out there anyone could recommend? 
8MP is plenty for the rear camera and I agree with the posts above. It will take great photos and more than that is not needed unless you print posters.  But I am disappointed the FaceTime camera didn't get a bump to the 2 to 3 MP range. Now that actually would make a huge difference in quality. As popular as selfies are now I was sure that would get a bump in megapixels. 
A lot to like with these new models and I am happy they decided to completely ditch the 4" moving forward. Yeah, you can still buy one in last years model but it is safe to say Apple went all in with big. I will definitely be getting the 6+.    It was a long wait to get a decent sized iPhone but just glad the wait is finally over. As expected, all the naysayers on AI suddenly developed amnesia and think we have forgotten all the crap they said the last...
Out of curiosity I checked Verizon. I didn't bother with AT&T since their plans are pretty close to Verizon, maybe a bit cheaper.    If I switched to Verizon and stuck with my average usage of around 15GB to be safe.    $60 for 2GB then $15 x13 additional GB = $195 plus $60 = $255. Compare that to around $75 tax included on Sprint with unlimited data. I am curious how anyone on Verizon can keep their usage that low? I would hate to constantly live in fear I am about to...
The one problem with Apple taking a cut is the banks or credit card companies will likely pass that on to consumers. For example, Discover just got through with a  six month promotion where if I averaged over $3,000 a month they will pay me $500 in addition to the normal cashback I already receive which range between 2% to 5% depending on merchants.That extra $500 was a nice bonus for doing nothing I don't normally do.    If Apple cuts into their fees, is it possible we...
 There might be a lot of cracked screens and broken iPhones from drive thru transactions as people hold their phones out the window. I wonder how that will work. Online sales is also another problem area for magnetic cards. It would be nice to have an added layer for online sales for example a temporary PIN that expires and is sent by text. Or perhaps Apple Pay incorporates some online purchase feature I have not read about yet.  Apple Pay won't solve all the issues but it...
