Once the payment is complete, the user will notice a beep and vibration. This handy new feature also simplifies shopping on the iPhone. Checking out has never been easier as users can simply select Apple Pay, then place finger on Touch ID to complete payment.

Apple Pay’s launch could not have come at a worse time. Given the iCloud celebrity hack scandal, things are not looking so good for the cloud. Sousa hopes to alleviate fears by reminding users they have nothing to worry about. There will be no credit card or debit card information in the system, instead it will be a token reference to accounts. iCloud and Visa Pay are two completely different things.

Visa has been the leader in contactless payment systems in Europe, so it is vital the company bring Apple Pay to the United Kingdom. Earlier this week the finance giant announced Apple Pay for the U.S. Just recently, it was confirmed Apple Pay would eventually come to Europe.
