Chinese site cnBeta highlights a series of photos posted by Weibo user zzray showing what is claimed to be an official, functional, and activated iPhone 6. While the authenticity of the device can not be confirmed, it does have some interesting characteristics worth noting.
The device does look different and you will notice the Passbook icon is different . This might be the new iwallet or apple pay product we have been hearing so much about .
Apple has been toying with mobile payments for a while now. The Iphone 6 feels like apple has finally reached a medium on their mobile wallet offering . The fact that apple picked NFC and the communications method is not surprising considering NFC is secure , fast and already widely used .
