Apple Pay inhibit competition, according Australians

Apple Pay is part of serious challenges in Australia, three of the largest banks in the country by submitting a common complaint to the Competition Commission in the idea of forcing Apple to attend a series of talks on how to install systems third payment mobile directly from your iPhone.

National Australia Bank (NAB), Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Westpac Banking Corp are the three banks in question, an accounting of all three saying journalists that restrictions imposed by Apple Wallet app on the installation of third-party solutions for mobile payments represent behavior anticompetitive.

Through this application, the three banks intend to ask the authorities to oblige Apple to enter into negotiations on the ability to install third-party software for mobile payments in the Wallet app, the Apple restricting access to force users to use only Apple Pay off own terminals.

Apple Pay is a thorn in Australian banks

Basically, banks will compel Apple to allow them to use the chip NFC in the iPhone because their applications can make mobile payments, but this will not happen, because Apple does not have the intention of opening access to this NFC chip to promote the third mobile payments systems.

Our wish is that Australians have the right to choose which system you want to use mobile payments. If our complaint is successful, it will bring enormous benefits to the Australian mobile payments, including payment schemes for public transportation, airline tickets, store loyalty programs and more to be developed.

The truth is that the way Apple restricts access to this NFC chip inhibit the growth of competing products, but those of Cupertino have thought strategy in precisely this sense and since until now access to this system has not yet been facilitated unlikely Apple to open it anytime soon.

The reality is that banks in Australia are unlikely to be pleased that Apple comes as a middleman for customers and charge for mobile payments made by users, their aim being to try to eliminate Apple Pay and never pay money to Apple .

If you have questions, I wait in the comments.

great iOS 10 function which you did not know that there

In iOS 10 Apple implemented a different way to unlock the iDevice’s, effectively eliminating the slide to unlock new system imposing pressing Home to make unlocking the lock screen, that though normally a simple press of the Home button does this action automatically for us.

Because many people complained because of this change, Apple has implemented a feature called Rest Finger to unlock, being available since iOS 10 beta 2, but currently down its activation allowing unlock iDevice sites with Touch ID by simply pushing ring that surrounds the Home button.

It will leave still disable another important system that probably many of you know, this allowing the release iDevice sites without leaving LockScreen site, functionality providing access to data from our terminals even for Siri or other applications that the way normally would not have access.

To strengthen the safety of users, Apple offers the option to block access to data from LockScreen for Siri, or other applications, this system is useful for those who fear their terminals could be stolen and the thieves could access photos, or other data important stored in their terminals.

In iOS 10 have the option to facilitate access these applications from data simply by pressing the Touch ID in LockScreen terminals unlocking it without entering the main screen applications, and on top you will not see a padlock, but a text which displays the word unlocked, suggesting that the terminals were unlocked.

ios 10 unlock lockscreen Deblocand iDevice’s from LockScreen we can use Siri or application Room with access to the entire photo library, but we can see in widgets information that normally iOS would restrict reasons security, the idea of Apple is very good and extremely helpful.

This system will be necessary for a lot of people who will want to take full advantage of iOS widgets 10, so you need to familiarize yourself with it even now, if you have this operating system installed.

7 iPhone with 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB storage space was confirmed

iPhone 7 and iPhone iPhone 7 Plus 7 Pro 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB storage space will be launched in autumn by Apple.

iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB storage space have been announced for release later this fall by a source Asian probably close to those of Cupertino and information is similar to one published last week on the same three devices.iPhone-7

The difference between the two rumors is related to the models that Apple will sell more specifically last week we were told that we will have iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro with 32 GB, 64 GB and 256 GB, but now model 64GB is actually replaced with a 128 GB, which would not be so bad.

Under both information, all three models would be sold with exactly the storage space offered by Apple, and this is not hard to believe considering that and at the moment the top models of the Cupertino are sold in exactly the same format.

More storage space for the same price

The most interesting part is that these three models of the iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro would take selling prices similar to current models of the iPhone 6S and here talking about 16 GB vs 32 GB, or 64 GB vs 128 GB, Apple will keep the price relatively unchanged.

Regarding prices iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, well they would be these:
iPhone 7: euro 708 (32GB), 815 euros (64GB), 949 euro (256GB);
iPhone 7 Plus: euro 815 (32GB), 922 euro (128GB), Euro 1056 (256GB);
iPhone 7 Pro: euro 949 (32GB), Euro 1056 (128GB), Euro 1190 (256GB).

As you can see, we are not talking about prices far different from the current required by Apple for its terminals, and this was expected given that all competitors Apple increase the storage space of the smartphone or tablet without asking extra money.

The problem with all these rumors here is that the iPhone 7 Pro does not really belong in the company’s offer Apple as adding one model of the iPhone to the list of smartphones will generate unnecessarily more confusion for customers who would be interested to buy American products, and this is not desirable.

If you were to ask me, I would say the only iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be launched by Apple this fall, and they will have much more storage space than current models, Apple understanding finally we have to offer more.
