Apple Pay is great for anyone-- more so those who tend to be a little forgetful like myself on occasion. I will forget just about everything except my phone which is in my hand about 90% of the time I am awake. Not only is Apple Pay easily accessible, the Wallet app will hold multiple payment cards. So, you don't really want to use your Visa card for that purchase your about to make-- with just a swipe of your finger you can use that prepaid payment you've got in there. Using Apple Pay is also very secure because it uses Touch ID to authenticate purchases made. Does it really get any better than that?
Convenient checkout. On iPhone 6, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3, you can also use Apple Pay to pay with a single touch within apps. Checking out is as easy as selecting Apple Pay and placing your finger on Touch ID.
Keep your purchases private.
Apple doesn’t save your transaction information. With Apple Pay, your payments are private. Apple Pay doesn’t store the details of your transactions so they can’t be tied back to you. Your most recent purchases are kept in Passbook for your convenience, but that’s as far as it goes.
Keep your cards in your wallet. Since you don’t have to show your credit or debit card, you never reveal your name, card number, or security code to the cashier when you pay in a store. This additional layer of privacy helps ensure that your information stays where it belongs. With you.
