Software: iOS 8, featuring new frameworks HealthKit and HomeKit, designed to enable health and fitness apps to work together, and to control internet-enabled home appliances in one place.

Apple Pay: Apple’s new contactless payment system replaces the use of an actual credit or debit card. With Apple Pay, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element, a dedicated chip in iPhone. These numbers are never stored on Apple servers and never shared with merchants or transmitted with payment. The user, therefore, does not reveal his or her name, card number, or security code to the cashier when making a payment.
