01 Jun Now Taking Apple Pay
Charlotte Street Computers, an Apple Premier Partner and Asheville’s first Premium Service Provider, has recently joined over 2 million retailer stores in accepting Apple Pay.
From Apple’s website: “Apple Pay is simple to use and works with the cards you already have on the devices you use every day. And because your card details are never shared when you use Apple Pay — in fact, they aren’t stored on your device at all — using Apple Pay on your iPhone, Apple Watch, or iPad is the safer and more private way to pay.”
HERE is an article from Apple support on setting up Apple Pay on your device.
In order to use Apple Pay, you must have a compatible device and iOS version 8.1 or later. Apple Pay is compatible with the iPhone SE, iPhone 6, the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, and the iPhone 6s Plus which all have the required NFC radio antennae. Besides NFC compatibility, the other necessary piece of the hardware puzzle is a Touch ID sensor. The iPhone 5S does not meet all of the requirements. The Apple Watch is also supported when paired with one of the above devices.
