    Now, Apple has taken things one step further with a new feature called Tap to Pay on iPhone.

    The feature lets you send cash to businesses simply by tapping your iPhones together.

    ‘The new capability will empower millions of merchants, from small businesses to large retailers, to use their iPhone to seamlessly and securely accept Apple Pay, contactless credit and debit cards, and other digital wallets using only their iPhone and a partner-enabled iOS app — no additional hardware or payment terminal needed.’

    Here’s how you can try Tap to Pay on iPhone yourself.

    ‘We’ve seen Tap to Pay on iPhone transform the checkout experience for so many different types of businesses, and we’re thrilled to now support merchants across the UK by offering an easy, secure, and private way to accept contactless payments using the power, security, and convenience of iPhone, with no additional hardware needed,’ said Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay and Apple Wallet.

    With the feature, businesses can unlock contactless payment acceptance through a supporting iOS app.

    This is available on the iPhone Xs or later.

    At checkout, the seller simply prompts the customer to tap their iPhone or Apple Watch to pay, and the payment will be securely completed with NFC technology.

    Best of all, no additional hardware is needed.

    Apple reassures that the new feature is secure and your data is protected.

    ‘Privacy is fundamental in the design and development across all of Apple’s payment features,’ it explained.

    ‘With Tap to Pay on iPhone, customers’ payment data is protected by the same technology that makes Apple Pay private and secure.

    ‘All transactions made using Tap to Pay on iPhone are encrypted and processed using the Secure Element, and as with Apple Pay, Apple doesn’t know what is being purchased or who is buying it.’
