iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the very first devices that comes loaded with NFC chip inside them. Apple is not late, they have actually innovated the way to use this NFC device. And here comes the all new “Apple Pay”. As its name suggest, it has got something related with payments. Its actually more than that. Let’s take an example and make it simpler:
- Click one image of your Credit or Debit card and add it to your iTunes account.
- Now add this card to your Passbook app.
- The default card would be the first one you added in Passbook(you can change that).
- Now, you have your debit/credit card fully loaded inside your iPhone.
- Apple Pay will assign a unique Device Account Number that will be stored in a secured chip inside the iPhone.
- Now, you just need to hold it near any contact-less reader with your identified finger on Touch ID.
- And, you are done with your payment. A beep will further let you know about the transaction.
Using this method will neither disclose your card’s info to merchant nor to Apple. If you, by-chance, lose your iPhone, you can even remove all these info from your device just by using Find My iPhone app on some other iDevice or Mac. But don’t worry, Apple pay never stores your cards info. Thanks to the encryption algorithm used by Apple.
