Apple Pay used to purchase a $1 million vintage Aston Martin DB5

For the car lovers among you, the Aston Martin was kept in dry storage for 20 years. It's a right-hand drive silver birch model with a read leather trim. Its previous owner gave it a full restoration, complete with an engine rebuild and overhauling the suspension and gearbox.
Recently, Apple Pay added support for 24 additional banks in the United States, along with support for British Airways bookings. The service is available on iOS devices and the Apple Watch. It offers point-of-sale tap-to-pay functionality and in-app purchase authorizations enabled by the device's fingerprint sensor and secure enclave that stores payment credentials.

No surprise really, the demographics of iPhone users show a higher education and income level as compared to other platforms.

No surprise that someone would come along to make such a smug and shallow remark.

I am not surprised that Apple has to leak this information out. It could be done with any other pay system, other than Apple pay. Apple with their sensationalism. So what about the part where Apple went cheap on their 32 GB iPhones? Hmm. What about the news where Apple put in cheaper and much slower storage compared to the 256gb models, it's slower by 8 times. So I guess Apple people are gullible and will buy anything from Apple, and they will believe that they are getting the best. Suckers!

When someone makes a comment like that, and has no response, that person is only trying to bait you into giving him a reaction. Do yourselves a favor, when people make really dumb comments like that, simply ignore them. Don't feed the troll

That's mostly in North America. And, Apple doesn't offer mid- to low-end devices, so those who want an Apple device will have to settle for the high-end and most expensive segment of smartphones. Comparing the income level of iPhone users versus Android users isn't relevant, unless only Android flagships users are being compared to iPhone users - and I bet such comparision/demographic is virtually a tie. And for the "higher educational level" part, that is utterly irrelevant, as IQ has no correlation with education - if that's what you were implying there.
