Apple Pay being tested at McDonald’s


Apple pay

Support for Apple Pay only appeared in iOS 8.1 firmware , and the first test is already on the network is being conducted at McDonald’s where  employees have  technology is as simple as buy a hot burger. John Ross, who owns iPhone 6 with new iOS 8.1, came a couple of hours ago, in one of the fast food restaurants and to pay using the new payment system.

After downloading iOS 8.1 for our iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple is enabled Pay as a payment method in the territories in which it is possible to activate it. Currently there are many limitations but users who already enjoy this technology, have taken to the streets to do their own testing.

This time we see a user decides to pay your order of McDonalds using the NFC included in the iPhone 6 As you can see in the video, the payment is accompanied by several failed attempts, perhaps for some specific error in positioning the POS terminal on the fast food restaurant. In all these attempts we see the iPhone invites us to put our finger on the Touch ID to authorize payment, a measure of security than the classic four-digit PIN. Finally the payment is made and is reflected in the application Passbook is the place where you access the settings Apple Pay.

Certainly, in the hours appear more videos with demonstrations on using Apple Pay and hopefully display them more clearly the payment process with the iPhone. A priori it seems slower than we could expect but again, we have to wait to see more evidence on its operation to see if it really works well or slowness and failures are due to unfamiliarity with technology. In the video Walgreens everything seems to work correctly the first time but this is a video prepared in that spontaneity is lost.

All this he videotaped in order to capture the historic moment.

Recall that Apple Pay service is now available for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with iOS 8.1 and is valid until the United States only.
