Apple also announced the Apple Watch, to debut early next year. The watch will come in two sizes and three different models: Watch, Watch Sport and Watch edition. The new tech has a slew of interesting features and customizable notifications and will start at $349. via LifeHacker
Apple Pay is the new NFC system Apple has integrated with the iPhone and Apple Watch. The API, which was only briefly mentioned during the announcement, will be huge. Payments are such a challenge for so many products in the mobile space, and this will be a game changer if done right.
