Story 1

Interchange fees, hubris key challenges to Australian Apple Pay rollout

Apple is reportedly facing pushback as it tries to roll out Apple Pay in Australia, as major banks in the region are reluctant to cede a slice of the AU$2 billion they take in with interchange fees in exchange for technology some say is already available in the country.


Story 2

iOS 8.4.1

A minor update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch is now officially available, arriving as iOS 8.4.1.

The latest update to Apple’s mobile operating system is not very substantial, but it does fix a number of bugs that affected Apple Music, which made its debut with iOS 8.4 back in June.

iOS 8.4.1 resolves several other issues, including those that previously prevented users from turning on iCloud Music Library. Another previous issue, meanwhile, hid recently added music because Apple Music only showed offline music, but the update resolves this as well.

Moreover, the latest iOS 8.4.1 also fixes the issue that previously showed different artwork for an album on various devices. The update further brings some tweaks to iBooks, some essential bug fixes and some security enhancements. Apple has also posted some release notes so users can learn more about the security content of iOS 8.4.1.

The new update should make everything run more smoothly and eliminate some hiccups, and it’s now available for download for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad owners. To install iOS 8.4.1, access your devices Settings > General > Software Update and upgrade to the latest version, or connect your device to iTunes to get the latest software.
