This includes a short press for searches, two short presses for shortcuts and holding it to bring up Siri.

South Korea: An Apple Pay launch in South Korea is still in its early stages, AppleInsider notes. While the tech company has met with some officials in the country to explain how the system works, it hasn’t been taking part in detailed discussions, yet. A recent report also claims that it still hasn’t set up a schedule for any meetings of this nature. A card company in South Korea has confirmed that this is the case and says that it has only had early talks with AAPL.

Right to Repair: A new report claims that Apple is planning to fight “right to repair” legislation, reports Motherboard. Nebraska state legislature is considering the bill and an inside source claims that AAPL will step up against it.

There are currently eight states that are considering right to repair legislation.
