Apple is hoping to be the gamechanger in mobile payments with Apple Pay, their new payment system that aims to be your mobile wallet for paying for items in store and online.
Payments are simplified as you would expect, you can take a photo of your card and you're ready to go. Security is also key as cashiers will never see a card number, name, or security code. They've also teamed up with an expansive list of retailers for contactless payments, of which there are 220,000 merchants that already support contactless payments. Lost your phone? You can even suspend your payments with Find my iPhone. Apple Pay will launch in the US this October.
