Report claims Apple partners with American Express for mobile payments in iPhone 6

 

Days away from the upcoming Apple event and the rumour mill is abuzz with life. A new report has surfaced saying Apple has reached an agreement with American Express to bring new mobile payment systems for the upcoming iPhone. This is in line with part leaks that have shown the presence of NFC (finally) in the iPhone 6. There are credit card companies that support NFC use for wireless payments and hopefully Apple’s supposed entry into the space might push merchants to support this kind of payment system. We’ll just have to wait a bit more to see if there is any truth to the new rumour.

Twitter revamps sign-up process for newbies

Twitter wants to lure in new users with a more follow-friendly sign-up process. The app will now ask you to choose topics you are interested in and then will offer you suggestions based on your selection. You will even be able to view recent tweets from these accounts to give you a better sense of whether you’d want to follow them or not. It will admittedly get a bit tedious though because the default is you will follow all the suggestions and you’d have to manually deselect those you don’t want to watch.

WhatsApp for Android Wear exits beta

WhatsApp first made its appearance on Android’s smartwatch operating system in beta and it needed users to sideload the app to the device. Now, you just need to download the app from Google Play Store since it’s just been taken out of beta. The update brings the ability to see entire WhatsApp messages on your Android Wear smartwatch, view individual sender’s names in group conversations, and look through stacked notifications to make sure you don’t miss out on any messages. You are also given the capability to reply to messages with the smartwatch through voice reply. The usual bug fixes and performance updates have also been included in this general release.

New Apple patent proposes a more durable Lightning cable, docking station

Apple patents don’t guarantee that the actual product gets made but here’s something we’re hoping would make an eventual appearance. Apple is looking for a way to make the Lightning cable more durable and flexible up to the tip. Accompanying this is a new dock that will make it safer and easier to charge your Apple device.

According to Patently Apple, this is the description of the new patent: “On August 28, 2014, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that reveals an improved method of producing a lightning connector that has a newly defined breaking strength. This new feature will be able to protect the receptacle lightning connector and/or the electronic device from damage when a force is applied to the lightning connector. One of Apple’s patent figures specifically presents a new docking station utilizing this new feature.”
