The initiative is designed to protect the user's personal information whilst also allowing them to make payments directly from their devices, using the convenience of the Passbook app for safe, easy payments and totally removing the need for credit and debit cards.

Apple Pay will be available for both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus – and the Apple Watch from next year – with the introduction of iOS 8.1. Apple Pay's online shopping within apps will also be available on the newly introduced iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.
