Judging from our Twitter feed, all anyone wanted to talk about this weekend was how drugstore chains CVS and Rite Aid have gone out of their way to prevent iPhone 6 owners from making purchases with their new handsets — and there may be a very good reason for this, as outlined in our Monday Morning Report. We also take a look at OS X Yosemite adoption and how iPhone 6 preorders are trumping Samsung on their own turf. Kick off the week with a click!
Apple's next media event is right around the corner, and iPhone 6 owners have more to be excited about than the possibility of new iPads or Macs, thanks to the arrival of Apple Pay as part of a free software update. Our Monday Morning Report looks at when we might expect the service to kick off (along with a potential alternative coming next year), as well as the iPhone 6's arrival on Boost Mobile later this week.
After so long stuck in the mire, Apple's mobile payment system appears to be taking its final form quickly. Just yesterday we heard how the Cupertino giant had managed to snag lower credit card processing fees for the service from the likes of MasterCard and Visa, and now word's coming in from Re/code that retailers Walgreens and CVS plan to accept purchases made with the system once it's released.
After a short hiatus, Free App Friday has returned to fulfill wishes. Each week we've promised to bring you something you never knew you needed, but could no longer live without. We bring you an app that could only be unlocked to its true potential with the power of iOS 6. This is Walgreens.
