 Which leads me to ask why they didn't add NFC to the new mini and Air 2? After all, they have TouchID and if you're carrying them around they could easily be used for payments too. Seems to me Apple should cram that technology into as many devices as possible.
One problem that I think Apple has lies with the replacement market. That is, every time someone replaces an existing iPad they then turn around and hand down or resell the old iPad. As such, whenever Apple sells a replacement iPad they take not one, but two customers out of the market.
Terribly disappointed that they didn't put the full iPhone 6 Plus stabilized camera in the iPad. Since it's such a "wonderful" camera platform and all.
Be interesting to see when the first "thumbprint" court case comes down the pike. For most of the encrypted iPhones, a mere thumbprint would probably be all that's required to access the device.   Also keep in mind that the encryption (and protection) only applies to data stored on the device and not on data mirrored to iCloud or Dropbox or some other cloud storage service. That information can be still be subpoenaed.
 You can turn off the Predictive auto-suggest panel in Settings > General > Keyboard.
Apple needs to allow developers to downgrade phones to previous versions of iOS for testing purposes.
I'm waiting for a killer iPhone that has rounded edge sapphire glass front and back, joined with an iPhone 4'ish Liquid Metal band around the edges!   Basically scratch proof front, back, and sides.   Rumor mills take note.
 There's a plus, and that's that the bands are on the top/bottom edges and corners, which in turn means that you're less likely to scratch the aluminum back.
 I don't think the phone sends anyone anything until the secure enclave is unlocked via Touch ID. Hence "drive by" scanners are a non-issue.
 It's back up 2.5% today. Hit bottom and already rising as analysts begin to figure out what the article recognizes.
