Yesterday Apple released iOS 8.1 and with it Apple Pay went live. The new payments service can be used to make purchases online, in applications as well as at physical stores although the service has been launched in the U.S. only right now. Major banks are supporting Apple Pay but keep in mind that not all of their debit and credit cards work with the service. Apple has published a new support document online which details which cards are supported by Apple Pay.
A few weeks back Google detailed the next major update for Android Wear, its relatively new platform for wearable devices. The update is going to add a couple of new features to Android Wear, including but not limited to the ability to play music offline. Countless reports from G Watch owners coming in today reveal that the Android Wear 4.4W.2 update has been rolled out and this smartwatch is the first Android Wear device to get it.
