You Should Know What Exactly Your iPhone Is Capable Of


Apple Pay first officially launched in the UK in July 2015. Beyond its launch iPhone has gone more further.

The payment system allows iPhone and Apple Watch owners to use their Apple-branded gadgets to pay at contactless checkouts, instead of traditional debit and credit cards.

Apple requires your fingerprint on the Touch ID fingerprint sensor to authorise a payment with an iPhone via NFC.

The company does not upload your credit or debit card details online – nor does it reveal your card details to the merchant when you pay.

Instead the privacy-minded firm generates an entirely-new Device Account Number, which is accepted instead of the numbers on your card.

However some people may have been put-off using Apple Pay.

Confusion over who is able to accept the payment – not to mention the crippling embarrassment should a transaction fail after you’ve proudly slapped your iPhone down at the till – are some of the biggest reasons people are put off using this technology.

But, if you own an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, 6S Plus, iPhone 7, 7 Plus, or Apple Watch – you shouldn’t be scared. Apple Pay is a fast, easy and incredibly secure.

And there is another reason why Apple Pay is better than using your old-fashioned debit card that’s not widely advertised.

Unlike paying with a contactless credit or debit card, Apple Pay is now pretty much limitless, which means large transactions are now accepted in a range of stores across the UK.

Earlier this year, an £825,000 vintage Aston Martin was purchased using Apple Pay.

The car was sold through international auctioneers Coys of Kesington, and was one of four classic cars available to buy.

The winner of the auction paid for the car using Apple's payment service making it the largest in-app purchase ever processed.

Due to security issues, contactless cards are limited to small amounts under £30, but because of the biometric security measures in place – as well as the Device Account Number – used with Apple Pay, more cash can be spent.
