Apple Shares New Apple Pay for iPhone Guided Tour

Following the launch of Apple Pay in Australia and Canada earlier this week, Apple has shared a new Apple Pay Guided Tour video that walks users through how to use Apple Pay on their iPhones.

The video goes through the steps of making a payment at an NFC terminal with a finger on the Touch ID home button of an iPhone and it covers the security behind Apple Pay. Apple Pay shares no credit card numbers or personal information with cashiers during the checkout process.


There's also a walkthrough on how to set up Apple Pay through the Wallet app and details on using the payments service within an app.

Apple Pay is now available in the United States, the UK, Canada, and Australia, with the latter two countries receiving the service through a partnership with American Express. In 2016, Apple Pay will expand to Spain, Singapore, and Hong Kong through the same AMEX partnership.

Apple has previously published a number of Guided Tour videos, most recently sharing a video series that walks users through how to use the various features of Apple Music. In the past, Apple has also done quite a few Apple Watch Guided Tour videos to teach users how to unlock the full capabilities of the wrist-worn device.

I don't know anyone who uses American Express in Australia


I used to know someone who had a AMEX card in Canada. Then, Costco switched to MasterCard and that was the end of it.

Apple should issue a credit card direct from visa, mastercard etc that works in every country, or at least in a country with regulation endorsed oligopolies masquerading as a competitive banking market like Australia. it is not a physical card, only through ApplePay. Its payment is due on a day you select in iTunes, and is paid on that date by the credit card you have linked to iTunes. That way, if your normal credit card billing cycle is say, 1st day of the month, you set our apple pay virtual card to be paid on the 2nd of the month. This means actual payment of some goods would be up to two months. Also, Apple could set the credit limit before a pin would be required at whatever level it wanted.

It is clear the Australian banks are paying hard ball. So go around them, exclude them altogether.


Google did that for Google Wallet. It's not sustainable or scalable because they were on the hook for the merchant's card fees. And not even the "card present" fees either--since the actual card's technically not present for the transaction, they had to pay the even higher fees that online stores typically pay to accept cards.

Costco just recently got chip and pin and looks like they put in antiquated cheapest equipment they could find.
I hate Costco... they always want to violate my personal property when I leave at the door (ie. my purchases I just paid for therefore are my property).


As part of the membership agreement you did agree to have your receipt checked at the exit.

Oh, you see in Canada, there's a guy named "John Smith" who uses it.
I know, 'cause I always see his name on those cards.

I use ApplePay with fingerprint scanner every chance I get. I love the convenience, but that's not the real reason I use it. Unlike Samsung, your real credit card number doesn't get sent to the merchant with Apple Pay. The security is exactly what the financial industry needs.

Give us a 4" iPhone that supports Apple Pay!!! Not everyone wants a two-handed 4.7" phablet.

I finally set up and used Apple Pay last week, it's absolutely fantastic!

5 seconds and it's done, you've paid and on your way and the next person in line can be served quicker too.


I love Apple Pay too, although the payment method is quick I find I'm then standing around waiting for the receipt. Maybe the next step is to have the receipt sent to my phone at the same time.

Before commenting, do your research: "Samsung also claims that it replaces "sensitive card data" with token payments. The retailer receives only "a device-specific token and a dynamic, one-time-use security code."

And when you use Samsung pay, you don't need to take the chance of the merchant not accepting it as a form of payment, as the only places that Samsung pay doesn't work are gas stations and parking meters; where the whole card needs to go inside the machine.
