Apple seems to be moving at the speed of light with its device launches and software updates. It was announced last week that the next Apple media event would happen on October 16; Apple is scheduled to launch their new iPad Air 2 and even their iPad Mini 3. Today, we’re going to take a look at a new service from apple that is going to make mobile payments a breeze: the Apple Pay service.
Apple Pay Service – Coming This Week
Sources are saying that the new Apple Pay service will be made available this week, after the Apple media event which is going to take place this Thursday. The service is going to make shopping easy-as-pie because you won’t even have to take your credit card out of the wallet.
Everything will be stored inside your Passbook and Apple Pay app: your credit card information and bank info. To complete a purchase inside an actual store, iPhone owners will just have to hold their phone over the contactless readers and touch the fingerprint sensor on their smartphone. You won’t even have to open an app or even wake your display. All this is possible thanks to the NFC antenna (near field communication) that is present inside iPhone 6. And to make things even more unbelievable, you won’t even have to check your screen to see if the transaction was successful, your phone will vibrate gently!
Android users already have Google Wallet, but it seems that Apple Pay is going to something else entirely. It was one month that Apple announced the Apple Pay service and now iPhone lovers are getting ready to change the way they do their shopping for good.
