Apple announced the launch of the new iPhone, the smart iWatch and a new payment system last night.
According to BBC, the iWatch runs apps, acts as a health and fitness tracker. Meanwhile the iPhone’s screen measures 4.7in (11.9cm) and the iPhone 6 Plus’s 5.5in (14.0cm) – a change that analysts said should help prevent users migrating to Android.
Also, a new service called Apple Pay was launched, which chief executive Tim Cook said he hoped would “replace the wallet” in shops.
The Apple Pay service depends on an NFC (near field communication) chip featured in both the new phones and watch. Apple described this service as being “secure” because it worked without Apple needing to store the credit card details itself, or the user having to share their name and card details with the cashier.
