New video explains how Apple Pay works

New video explains how Apple Pay works
Currently available only in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia, Apple Pay is a simple mobile payment and digital wallet service. However, since those who can't test it (either because they're not based in the markets mentioned above, or don't have an Apple device) do not know how easy it is to use Apple Pay, Apple recently released a video to showcase just that.

The video - embedded below - also shows how to setup Apple Pay on your iPhone (it needs to be an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, or iPhone 6s Plus).

The service works not just when you want to pay wirelessly with your phone in stores, but also when you need to make purchases online. The Apple Watch can be used with Apple Pay, too.

Of course, other similar services from Apple's competitors (like Android Pay and Samsung Pay) are also very easy to use. But we can't blame Apple for advertising its own service, right?

The problem isn't the setup, it's knowing where accepts it. And since I usually don't know until I get to the terminal, I end up using a card. Plus, there are enough places that Do not accept it that I find it way more practical to use a card

Apple could have just posted the video of Google Wallet when it came out. Would have saved them production time. By all reports, Samsung Pay works perfectly, and of course. And much miter than a handful of places. I know that stings the faithful.

If it works? There are YouTube videos of people actually using it. I never have worry about using Samsung Pay. It works in 99.9% of the places I've tried or was able to try.

I thought iPhones are so easy to use that you don't need any tutorials to find out how everything works.

A lot of android users switched to Apple products... so now Apple needs to do this... (you troll, you get trolled)

That is false and stupid. Because Google Wallet and Android Pay work exactly the same way Apple Pay does. But you have the nerves to claim someone else's post is stupid. Android had a payment system first as I recall. You do know that much....right? Both Android Pay and Apple Pay are hampered by the same issue. 90% of retailers c onto have NFC terminals, which is why Samsung Pay is better. Works at both NFC and magstape ones too. So much for the claim, Apple doesn't release things until it's perfect. When the fact is, Apple is only going to release things that benefit them.

I am sure there are people with iPhones who don't know how to use it.

Apple Pay launches with Amex-issued cards only in Australia and Canada—LOL ... Who cares anyway? Not even Apple users apparently; in the US, only ~5% of those Apple users that have had the opportunity to use Apple Pay, have done so—LOL ...
