Get Started With Apple Pay

As your new digital wallet, how to use your iPhone? here is the way to find out.

Apple Pay means Apple’s payment system. This stores your credit card information on your compatible device. You should pay for things without having to whip out that plastic card you keep in your wallet.


Started With Apple Pay

The Apple Pay system is two-fold. It lets you pay for things using your device in stores and in apps. Recent most iPhones can do both. Devices such as iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2 allow you to purchase things in apps but not in stores. Owners of an older iPhone such as the iPhone 5S will need to pair it to an Apple Watch when it’s released to make in-store purchases. Apple has a chart to explain which devices are compatible with Apple Pay.

How to set it up

Firstly, you have to update your Apple device to iOS 8.1. Backup your phone to iTunes or iCloud for safety. Go to Settings General Software Update to update your mobile. Download and install the update.

Within Passbook, your credit cards are managed. You will see a new option to add debit and credit cards with the update. Apple’s made it easy to link whatever credit card you use with iTunes to Passbook. You should enter your security code to verify the card.


You can type in the number or you can use the camera to scan the card for other credit cards. You can change the default credit card associated with payments by going to Settings > Passbook Apple Pay if you have multiple cards in Passbook.


Using your mobile you’ll be able to purchase things now.
