Hands on with Apple Pay

Apple Pay is a strange sort of wonderful magic—the kind of tech that makes you feel like you're living in the future. Our Android brethren have had NFC-enabled solutions for years in the form of Google Wallet, but compatible terminals were far and few between.

That's changed: Apple Pay, at launch, is supported in over 220,000 stores and by 34 brands, with more launching by the end of the year. And it's not just random boutique shops and Apple Stores, either—there are big-name retailers and grocery stores on the master launch list.

Earlier today, I hit up the Apple Store, Walgreens, and Whole Foods for a quick tour of the Apple Pay experience. The result? A wholly enjoyable, quick-checkout process that left me wishing for more.

iPhone to iPhone 6: History in specs

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the latest in a line of Apple phones stretching back to the original in 2007. Year after year, release after release, they've grown bigger, faster, more powerful, and better. You can see it in the specs and feel it in the experience. Now, some people believe specs mean everything. That you can sum up any phone, any device, by the rows on a spreadsheet. Other people believe specs mean nothing. That it is experience and experience alone that defines a device. The truth, as is often the case, lies smack in between. Specs matter in that they're needed to deliver an experience. If the specs aren't sufficient, the experience will suffer. If they specs aren't utilized, then they don't matter. Since Apple uniquely controls everything from the chipset to the software and services, they're best positioned to wring every ounce of experience out of their specs. So, with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, what are those specs?

Clearing up the iCloud Drive confusion: No, there's no iCloud Drive app on iOS!

The launch of iOS 8 brought with it the launch of iCloud Drive, and... a whole lot of confusion. Apple stated during the WWDC keynote that while iCloud Drive was coming to both the Mac and iOS, there would not be a standalone iCloud Drive app. That's not a problem with OS X Yosemite because it's built right into the Finder, but iOS doesn't have a Finder either, so the only way to access iCloud Drive on an iPhone or iPad is through an app like Numbers, Keynote, Pages, or an App Store app. Cue the internet pitchforks and torches. So, what's really going on with iCloud Drive on iOS, and how can you get to your files?
