The most comprehensive guide you’ll find to using Apple Pay

Apple Pay is the future. You can fight it all you want, but as we have discussed several times here on BGR in the past, services like Apple Pay will be the primary means of transactions in the United States at some point in the future. It will be a while until they truly proliferate, as we said when covering a cool new smart card called Coin, but these services will proliferate.

As fantastic a job as Apple did making its mobile payment solution as easy as possible to use, there are still some things that won’t be obvious to every iPhone owner out there. But don’t worry — we’ve found the most comprehensive guide on the planet to using Apple Pay, and it has everything you need to know. More →

81 stunning iPhone 6 wallpapers you can download for free

Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus might not pack as many pixels on their displays as the quad HD screens on smartphones like the LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, but there’s absolutely no question that in terms of display quality, the iPhones are two of the best in the business. The screens are bright and clear, and colors are far more bold and vivid than they are on most other smartphone displays.

iPhone 6 Wireless Charging

How to add wireless charging to your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for $20

How to add wireless charging to your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for $20

Count wireless charging among a handful of smartphone features that are absolutely terrific but not quite popular enough to truly impact user experiences as much as they should. There is no question that simply placing your handset down on a charging surface is more convenient than plugging in a cable or shimmying your phone into a dock. Not enough phones support wireless charging out of the box, however, and users still need to buy multiple charging pads for different locations and also carry a charging pad for use on the go.

Someday, wireless charging stations will be everywhere we go and the technology will indeed vastly improve the smartphone user experience. Until then, it’s a nice convenience when it’s supported. And while Apple device owners still can’t enjoy that convenience out of the box, you can now add wireless charging to your device just a few minutes with minimal investment. More →

Time and time again, we’ve seen examples of photographs captured by professionals using nothing but the cameras on the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets.

Pro photographers regularly sing praises when it comes to the quality of shots captured on Apple’s iPhones, and they always love all the great third-party photo editing software that lets them retouch images right on their devices.

Now, in this latest example, professional travel photographer Kevin Russ talks about how perfect his iPhone is for capturing images in remote regions. The iPhone allows him quickly edit and upload his photos while on the go, and the images he has captured along the way with his iPhone 6 are absolutely stunning. More →
