Bank of America Makes Apple Pay Available to Customers and Merchants; New Service From Apple Provides Simple, Secure Payment Method
October 20, 2014
Bank of America today began offering its customers and merchants access to Apple Pay , a new mobile payments service that provides an easy and secure way to pay. Enhanced security is at the core of Apple Pay. When customers add a credit or debit card to Apple Pay, the actual card number is not stored on Apple servers, and only the last four digits of the actual card number is stored on the device. Instead, a unique virtual card number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on the device so the full card number will not be accessible if the mobile device is either lost or stolen. "We are committed to giving our customers what they want - simple ways to pay for everyday things - so they can get on to the more important aspects of their lives," said Thong Nguyen, president of Retail Banking at Bank of America. "Apple Pay is another great example of how we are improving the financial lives of our customers."

Apple CEO faces high holiday sales bar fueled by new devicesc
October 18, 2014
Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook is ready to tackle the holiday season with a full product array including new iPads. His challenge now is luring the hordes of buyers that analysts are projecting. Apple this week unveiled refreshed iPads and Macintosh computers at an event at its Cupertino, California-based headquarters. The iPads are thinner and include fingerprint sensors, with the Macs boasting features such as sharper displays and faster processors. The devices follow Apple's introduction last month of larger-screen iPhones, a smartwatch and a mobile-payments system. The lineup is ratcheting up Wall Street's projections that Apple is entering a high growth phase, which Cook will now have to meet. The CEO is also facing calls by activist investor Carl Icahn to increase Apple's value. Investors will get a taste of how Cook's latest gambits are performing next week, when Apple reports fiscal fourth-quarter results on Oct. 20.
