Apple Pay (and similar services) will revolutionise the way we shop, particularly with High Value Contactless (HVC) payments getting closer.

The 9th of September. That’s the date Apple will unleash its latest and greatest iPhone on an expecting world. The first iPhone set the scene for a sea change in personal computing in 2007, proving to be the catalyst for smart phones and apps going mainstream. Ever since, just about every tech blogger has spent the build up to each Apple event guessing what new features will be included and how this will again move the mobile world forward.

If all goes to plan – and it seems the industry is willing it to – we could be paying for our iPhone 7s in September 2015 with your iPhone 6s.
