The new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have bigger screens, badder cameras and you can use them in place of your wallet.

Apple just took the wraps off Apple Pay, its much-rumored mobile payments service. CEO Tim Cook is so excited about it that he looped the demo over and over during the keynote. It’s being touted as an “easy, secure and private” way to get your caffe latte on the run.

Walgreens already has a free app in the App Store.

Walgreens has begun deploying iPads to pharmacy employees as in-store tools for helping customers with prescriptions. The initiative is a slow rollout, with Walgreens only sending iPads out to 16 stores in the Chicago area.
