Apple Pay Headed To You On October 20th – 500+ Banks In Cooperation

Last month, Apple unveiled their system called Apple Pay. This system is supposed to be integrated into the next iOS update. The next iOS update will be iOS 8.1. When October 20th comes around, all iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users will have the new easy way to pay at stores like Walgreen’s, McDonald’s, Disney, and many more. The system involves a few banking companies like Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

Apple promises tight security with Touch ID and NFC chips inside the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. All that is needed is your thumb to pay at the selected stores. Eventually app developers will incorporate this into their apps so you can make purchases using Touch ID to confirm identity.

So if you do have an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, be ready for October 20th. Here’s to not having to worry about losing credit-cards anymore! Just don’t lose your thumbs.
