Wait, which iPhone model is that one with white background?

None of the iPhones have a thin bezel like that.
It is a mock-up, look at the unevenly placed bar at the base.

so what's the merchant fee? more then 2.9% I presume?
From my understanding the recipient will still need a merchant services account like Square to receive the funds, this just enables the NFC phone-to-phone compatability. The merchant fee would vary depending on whichever company the vendor decides to go with. Apple is not facilitating these transactions themselves.

Is Apple assuming every customers has an Apple device? Struggling with what would be the advantage over using the current merchant devices.
The advantage would be that businesses wouldn’t need to purchase additional card terminals to accept payments. They could repurpose older phones, or use existing iPhones that serve multiple purposes.

It’s also much easier to buy an iPhone as they’re available from so many retailers and online stores than to buy a dedicated card terminal and wait for it to be shipped.

Customers don’t need an Apple device. They can use a contactless debit card, credit card, Google Pay, Samsung Pay…

This is the way! The more adoption, the better in my opinion! It's easier than remembering a dongle to charge cards with (looking at you square).
