Apple Pay “Your wallet. Without the wallet”: How the new iPhone 6 Makes Your


Apple amazes us once again with Apple Pay.  “Gone are the days of searching for your wallet.” The new Apple iPhone 6 includes a new, fast, convenient way to pay. This application is great news for all fast food service establishments such as all fast food restaurants, food markets, coffee shops, and more. Apple Pay changes the way we pay with a breakthrough contactless payment technology technology and unique security features built right in the iPhone 6 device. Look out for the Apple Pay application being used more and more in popular fast foodservice establishments such as: Starbucks, Mcdonalds, Subway, and more. The Apple Pay hopes to provide an easy, fast way to pay for items such as clothes, convenience items, and food. Apple ultimately wants to replace the wallet with Apple pay, which will eliminate the need of you reaching in your wallet searching for your credit cards.



 iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus

iPhone 6 isn’t simply bigger — it’s better in every way. Larger, yet dramatically thinner. More powerful, but remarkably power efficient. With a smooth metal surface that seamlessly meets the new Retina HD display. It’s one continuous form where hardware and software function in perfect unison, creating a new generation of iPhone that’s better by any measure.


Apple Watch:

Double-click to pay and go. You can pay with Apple watch as well, just double click the button next to the digital crown and hold the face of your Apple Watch near the contactless reader. A gentle pulse and beep confirm that your payment information was sent.


Benefits In Foodservice

Apple pay is a secure, fast payment made for fast food restaurants. In the modern digital age technology is replacing people; this is a perfect example of that. McDonalds chains are leading the movement with custom burger ordering machines in several location in the United States. This machine in addition to Apple Pay eliminates a person taking your order. Think of a large screen displaying your menu that accepts payment. I don’t think we are ready just yet to fully replace people is the fast food business, although paying certainly just got a lot simpler with Apple Pay.


Order your burger with a touch of button. Pay with Apple Pay and your finished.

        So what does all this hype mean for the foodservice industry? It’s likely that Apple’s initial venture into mobile payment might set the standard for the future in the checkout line. This one-touch checkout allows customers to pay for items without having to enter in their credit card information, billing address, shipping address, or need for a person at the register, and surprisingly will make purchases more secure than ever before. Fast food restaurants, like McDonalds, will not only be adding Apple Pay to its registers inside, but also to its drive-thru’s as well. This tap-to-pay technology is expected to speed up lines at checkout making fast food even faster. Only time will tell if this new and enhanced user experience will lead to making wallets a thing of the past once it launches in the United States in October.

 More Secure Payments

Every time you hand over your credit or debit card to pay, your card number and identity are visible. With Apple Pay, instead of using your actual credit and debit card numbers when you add your card to Passbook, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted, and securely stored in the Secure Element, a dedicated chip in iPhone. These numbers are never stored on Apple servers. And when you make a purchase, the Device Account Number, along with a transaction-specific dynamic security code, is used to process your payment. So your actual credit or debit card numbers are never shared by Apple with merchants or transmitted with payment.
