Apple-PayFinally, the next revolution in money transaction is here, as Apple Pay comes to Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users as part of iOS8.1 update. Setting up Apple Pay cannot get any simpler than this, install the update, add a credit card to Passbook, and you’re good to start buying stuff with your iPhone. 

Just to help you get started, let’s help you get it working step by step.

  1. Download iOS 8.1 update and install.
  2. Launch Passbook, the option to enter a credit or debit card shows up promptly.
  3. Tap it, and you’ll immediately be asked whether you want to connect the credit card associated with your Apple ID or enter a new one.
  4. To enter the details freshly Apple Pay just needs the card info. You can either scan the card or input the information manually (the 3-digit security code is always manual entry). Oddly, for some reason, Apple Pay isn’t able to scan vertical cards. Instead, manual entry of account details is required.

Apple Pay will be supported by 220,000 vendors including department stores Macy’s and Bloomingdales, drugstores Walgreens and Duane Reade, restaurants Subway and McDonald’s, and other retailers including Target and Whole Foods.To check out stuff online, users can choose “Apple Pay” as their payment method and authenticate with Touch ID. Even apps like Groupon, Panera Bread, and Uber will be compatible with Apple Pay. Well that covers almost everything for an Apple device enthusiast.
