Apple Pay is the new payment system from Apple for iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches. The payment system works using a contactless function as well as Apple's own Wallet app. An existing card can easily be registered in the Wallet app for this. You can find more information about Apple Pay on the Apple website
Apple Pay is an easy, secure and private payment method that is based on your card's current security functions. Apple Pay does not save any transaction data and your card number is never shared on your device or when paying the merchant.
You can find more information about Apple Pay and the relevant security functions at apple.com
As cardholders authorize the payment through a fingerprint sensor (Touch ID) or code (iPhone/IPad) or unlocked Apple Watch, it is also guaranteed with Apple Pay that only the owners of the devices are making the payment.

- For iPhone: iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus or newer
- For iPad: iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 4 or newer
