Apple’s new mobile payment system Apple Pay is launching in the U.S. today, the service will become available on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus when Apple releases iOS 8.1.
As well as working on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Pay will also be available in the new iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 when they are released later this week.
Apple Pay uses Apple’s TouchID fingerprint scanner for security, and you will be able to add your credit card to your device through Passbook.
Apple’s mobile payment system will be available in a number of retail stores in the U.S., you will also be able to use the system to make online payments when you are buying goods.
As well as the new iPhone’s and iPad’s, Apple’s new mobile payment system will also be available on their Apple Watch, which will be launching in early 2015.
Apple announced last week that it had teamed up with over 500 banks in the U.S., and these banks will be supported by Apple Pay later in the year.
As yet Apple has not released any information on when they will expand the service outside of the U.S., we suspect we will have to wait until next year to see this new mobile payments system launch in the U.K.Filed Under: Apple, Technology News, Top News
