Apple Watch:

“One More Thing,” this trademark was for  Apple’s new wearable device Apple Watch instead of  iWatch.It uses a “Digital Crown” ,that thing on the side of an analog watch you use to set the time — for navigation, as well as addition to touchscreen swiping and Siri, and provides haptic feedback.

You will get a second button on the watch for Digital Touch which brings up a list of your favorite contacts, and supports tap-based shortcuts. There is a  sensor on the watch activates the display when you raise your wrist, and it bears a completely different interface than iOS, optimized for a small screen. It has a flexible Retina display with a sapphire screen, a variety of sensors for motion and health tracking, and it supports inductive charging. Apple told about some interesting applications, like the ability to unlock a hotel-room door, as well as Fitness and Workout.

There are six different straps in addition to watch faces, each of which uses a standard means to change them. Users will have there collections; Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport (most durable), and Apple Watch Edition (18K gold). It also requires an iPhone, though it will work with the 5 series as well as the iPhone 6 versions. It starts at $349. Apple has not revealed pricing for the UK or Australia, but $349 converts to around £220 or AU$380. Regardless, you won’t be able to get one until early 2015.

Apple Pay:

Apple announced a new feature which the company has been preparing for a long time.This is Apple Pay which will make new iPhone 6 and Apple Watch owners  to use their devices to pay with a tap for everyday purchases.Credit card info is integrated through PassBook, and it uses the TouchID sensor to authenticate a payment; the retailer gets just a single-use number verified by the bank instead of your name and credit card number, whether brick-and-mortar or online.

“This whole process is based on this little piece of plastic, whether its a credit or debit card,” CEO Tim Cook said on event yesterday “We’re totally reliant on the exposed numbers, and the outdated and vulnerable magnetic interface — which by the way is five decades old — and the security codes which all of us know aren’t so secure.”.

And Apple claims doesn’t monitor your purchases. It will launch with support from 83 percent of all banks and 220,000 US merchants. Apple Pay will launch in the US in October.

And at the end there was a musical cameo by U2.Apple told that iTunes users will get U2’s brand new album for free.
