Apple Pay Mobile Payment Service Announced

wallet

Apple just announced its mobile payment service for iPhone. The service allows users to store credit and debit cards on their phones and then tap-and-pay at check-out terminals.

Contrary to popular belief, it does indeed use NFC, as confirmed by Apple’s Eddy Cue on stage during the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus event. It takes advantage of NFC, Touch ID, the Passbook App and features a secure element to keep everything private. Passbook can store Apple Cards, too.

Apple said it never keeps track of what you spend and that the cashier at a check-out counter never sees your name, your pin or anything private. It works in places like the McDonald’s drive-thru, Subway, Whole Foods, Staples, Apple Stores, Disney and more.
