How to use Apple Pay: The ultimate guide

Apple Pay — or Pay if you're fancy — is Apple's mobile payment service. It stores your credit and debit card information on a Secure Element and lets you use it to pay online via apps on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 3, or in-store via near-field communications (NFC) on the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Authorization is handled by Touch ID or passcode, credit card information never leaves the device and is never synced to the cloud. One-time tokens are used when you pay so your real credit card information is never shared with developers or retailers. Best of all, it's not just secure — once it's setup, it's incredibly easy to use!

iOS 9 wish-list: 'Hey Siri!' activation alternatives

iOS 9 wish-list: 'Hey Siri!' activation alternatives

Too early to start thinking about iOS 9? Not at all. Features are already getting pushed, pitched and locked down for next year, so what better time to bring some attention to things that... well... need some attention.

"Hey Siri!" is a good one to start with. When your iPhone or iPad is plugged in, and "Hey Siri" is enabled in Settings, you can activate voice control simply by saying those magic words. The problem is, everyone knows those words and every plugged-in iOS 8 device recognizes them. That leads to inopportune activations — mischievous and accidental alike. How could "Hey Siri" be improved?

Editor's desk: What if Apple had a high-profile VP of App Store?

The successes of the App Store are well documented. There are millions of apps for iPhone and almost as many for iPad. Billions of dollars have been paid out to developers. Dozens of platform-defining apps have shipped. And the problems are just as well known. There's uncertainty about which apps will be or will stay approved. Premium apps continue to be devalued. Discovery and search are still a challenge.
