This is definitely a problem.
While I love my AirPods overall (in terms of convenience), they + iPhone 6s + Apple Watch + WiFi (sometimes) show 3 problems for me:
- AirPods disconnect from phone calls.
- AirPods disconnect from playing the Music or Podcasts app (and thus pause the playback)
- AirPods have frequently gaps/skips/blips in music playback
I'm not badmouthing AirPods; I love the vision and the convenience. But we also need to be honest and transparent about the shortcomings of v1 so that Apple engineers can continue improving them.
To me, this is not really Apple PAY... it is "Touch ID Authentication".
As I understand it, no money will be passing through the iPhone. Instead, the ATM will simply be accepting the user's fingerprint -- via Touch ID -- as a substitute for a physical ATM card. Maybe the answer lies in packaging: Apple has packaged NFC + TouchID in a single Apple Pay framework for developers, even though you can use it for situations that don't really involve a payment?
A friend had to replace a Samsung Note 7 and considered Pixel Phone since it came out around the time of the Note 7 recall.
He did not buy the Pixel Phone: "No waterproofing, whereas I can get that with other phones."
I don't see Pixel Phone surviving any more than the recently cancelled Chromebook Pixel.
