ApplePay Launches For iPhone In USA This Week

Apple’s much anticipated new ‘Pay’ system is set to launch in the USA this weekend. It will allow customers  to buy goods and services by tapping their new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus handsets against a payment terminal. It is a system that has been spoken of for sometime now and it looks like it is at last ready for action. There have been rumours from inside Apple’s headquarters that employees have been using the “Pay” system to buy lunch already!

We have heard that US store Walgreens will start using the service on October 18th and also that huge companies such as McDonalds, Macy’s and stationary giant Staples have also signed up to use ApplePay.

Apple announced the new Pay feature last month when it unveiled its new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets. It says that it hopes it will replace the “fairly antiquated payments process” of credit and debit cards.

Speaking at the Apple launch event, chief executive Tim Cook said: “This whole process is based on this little piece of plastic, whether it’s a credit or debit card. We’re totally reliant on the exposed numbers, and the outdated and vulnerable magnetic interface, which by the way is five decades old, and the security codes which all of us know aren’t so secure.”
