  • Using Apple Pay with your iPhone or Apple Watch is quick and secure. It’s a safer way to pay that helps you avoid touching buttons or exchanging cash.
  • Use Apple Pay on the App Store to buy apps and games, or within apps to pay for a ride, a pizza delivery, or a new pair of sneakers — with just a touch or a glance. You can also use Apple Pay for a subscription to Apple Music, Apple News+, and Apple Arcade. Or for upgraded iCloud storage and other Apple services.

Fun Fact: When you’re making purchases on the web in Safari on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, you can use Apple Pay without having to create an account or fill out lengthy forms.
