05:31 EDTVVisa to undertake assessment of stake in Monitise
Visa (V) and Monitise entered into an alliance agreement in 2009. At the same time, Visa began investing in Monitise. Given the maturation of Monitise as a company, Visa is considering its options with respect to the investment and has engaged J.P. Morgan Securities (JPM) to assist. Visa will also be lessening its dependence on external mobile development resources. In 2009, in conjunction with its commercial partnership, Visa invested in Monitise as a 14.4% owner of the company in order to provide capital support to a leader in the evolution of the mobile payments sector. Over time, Visa’s holdings have been reduced to its current 5.5% stake in the company. This reduction in ownership and associated influence is consistent with Visa’s investment practice to seed emerging players and, over time, taper that influence as the partner company grows. Under their agreement, Monitise will provide Visa with mobile platform development services through 2016. As both Visa and the payments industry evolve at a rapid pace, Visa intends to continue increasing its investment in its own in-house capabilities and, as a result, reducing its use of external resources.

15:14 EDTVVisa to support consumer payments with Apple Pay
Visa (V) announced it is supporting consumer payments with the new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple (AAPL) Watch. Thanks to a new capability called Visa Token Service, participating financial institutions in the U.S., and eventually abroad, will be able to add Visa debit and credit cards to Apple Pay, Apple’s new payment service, and enable their customers to make easy and secure purchases at select U.S. merchants both in stores and in apps. Visa Token Service technology works by replacing sensitive payment account information found on plastic cards with a digital account number or “token” that can be safely stored on mobile devices and used for in store and in app purchases. Visa will roll out the service to financial institutions in phases, initially supporting early participants in the Apple Pay launch, and then extending the service availability to all of its U.S. clients.

14:51 EDTTApple announces iPhone 6, 6 Plus with Retina HD, Apple Pay
Apple announced iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, featuring two new models with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD displays. The new iPhones feature a unibody enclosure of anodized aluminum that conforms with the shaped glass of the display. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus include the Apple-designed A8 chip with second generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture for fast performance and power efficiency. Both models include the M8 motion coprocessor that gathers motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and the new barometer. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus introduce Apple Pay, a new way to securely pay for physical goods and services in stores or apps. Users can pay securely in stores by holding the phone near the contactless reader while keeping a finger on Touch ID. The iSight camera gets better with a new sensor featuring Focus Pixels for faster autofocus and iPhone 6 Plus users will also benefit from optical image stabilization technology that compensates for hand shake in low light and works with iOS 8 to reduce subject motion. With faster LTE download speeds of up to 150 Mbps, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users can browse, download and stream content faster. The new iPhones also support voice calls over LTE, or VoLTE, as well as Wi-Fi calling. iPhone 6 comes in gold, silver or space gray, and will be available in the U.S. for a suggested retail price of $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 64GB model and 128GB model for $399 with a two-year contract. iPhone 6 Plus comes in gold, silver or space gray, and will be available in the US for a suggested retail price of $299 for the 16GB model, $399 for the 64GB model and $499 for the new 128GB model with a two-year contract. Both models will be available from the Apple Online Store, Apple’s retail stores, and through AT&T (T), Sprint (S), T-Mobile (TMUS), Verizon Wireless (VZ), additional carriers and select Apple Authorized Resellers. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK beginning on Friday, September 19, and customers can pre-order both models beginning on Friday, September 12.
