Apple Pay arrives in New Zealand today Apple Pay is now available in New Zealand for ANZ customers with an iPhone, reports Stuff. ANZ is the only bank in New Zealand that accepts it and it works both with their Visa and debit cards. Apple Pay works with the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE and Apple Watch. When paying within apps, Apple Pay is compatible with the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro. It’s also macOS Sierra compatible. Here’s a guide to using it.

Over the next two years, ebooks are set to surpass print in the US — However, the fate of the ebook is set to vary significantly by country. In Germany, for example, it will remain a niche player for the foreseeable future, according to a PriceWaterhouseCoopers study published by the Economist. [If you want to see New Zealand examples, and get free samples, of what’s possible in Apple’s iBooks platform, open iBooks, click Store on Mac or Featured on iDevice and type in ‘creativetech’.]

Make, throw, and catch virtual paper planes with your iPhone — Some of the best web experiences are those that induce a sense of childish wonder in all of us, and probably the best fun web experience today is paperplanes.world. This site was “made by some friends at Google, Active Theory and Droga5” and it’s thoroughly enchanting. The idea? You can throw and catch virtual paper airplanes, joining in with people from around the world.
