What is Apple Pay?

Apple Pay is Apple’s mobile payment service which lets users with an iPhone 6 or newer as well as Apple Watch owners make payments using NFC with their device. Apple Pay is also available in apps and on the web on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. To keep transactions secure, Apple uses a method known as ‘tokenization,’ preventing actual debit card numbers from being sent over the air.  Every transaction needs to be authorized by either Touch ID, Face ID, or your passcode.
