Apple Pay acts as a digital wallet that can be used to make safe payments in stores by using your iPhone 6, 6 plus or your Apple watch or your iPads. You can add a new card to your Apple Pay by going to the Settings and choosing “Wallet & Apple Pay”. You will need to be signed into iCloud. Tap “Next” and enter the card details. The app will utilize your camera so you can take a picture of your credit or debit card, or you have the option to enter the details manually.
