A Simpler Way to Pay
Apple Pay™ lets you make payments using your iPhone® in over a million stores and counting.
Safe & Secure Payments
You can rest assured your payment information will be protected. When adding a card with Apple Pay, your actual credit and debit card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers, and cashiers won’t see names, credit card numbers or card security codes.
Make In-App Purchases
Additionally, you'll also be able to pay with your fingerprint in participating merchant apps.
Get Started with Apple Pay™
To add your Ideal debit or credit card to Apple Pay, you'll need an iPhone® 6 or later model with iOS 8.1 or later.
