There is no need to open an app or wake the display, thanks to the innovative Near Field Communication antenna. Apple Pay can also be used to pay for apps with one simple touch and to check out is just as easy.
Setup is also very simple, users can save their credit and debit cards on Passbook from their iTunes account by entering the card security code. To add a new card on iPhone users can use the iSight camera to enter their card information or simply type it in manually. The first card added automatically becomes the default payment card. Payments can however also be made with a different card by going to Passbook and selecting a new default in Settings.
Payments are accepted by major credit cards such as VISA and MasterCard. For security reasons Apple Pay doesn’t save any transaction details so payments remain private. Find my iPhone can also be used to suspend Apple Pay or wipe all information on an iPhone should it get lost or stolen.
