Apple’s new card program will allow Apple to keep track of customers without revealing them to Apple card issuers
By now, most people know that Apple’s newest card program, the Passbook, is coming to iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches.
Passbook is an Apple service that allows users to use Apple Pay and the Apple Watch as payment for purchases in Apple Stores and at Apple Stores, including at Apple’s retail stores and in select online outlets.
Apple Pay is the payment method that has allowed Apple to sell more than $2 billion worth of Apple products, including Apple Watchers and iPhones, since the launch of the Apple Pay platform in 2016.
Passbook also provides the ability to check in to stores at Apple Retail Stores, Apple Pay kiosks, and at local Apple Stores.
The new Passbook program, which is coming in beta to developers in 2018, will allow users to pay with their iPhone or Apple Watch, pay for a purchase at an Apple Store, or use the Apple Wallet app to pay for purchases with other Apple products.
Users will have the option to store their Apple Pay payment card information in a Secure Enclave chip in the card itself, which means that it will be secure and not accessible by anyone outside the cardholder’s Apple account.
That means that Apple Pay will not be accessible to third-party apps that try to interact with Apple Pay, such as Apple Pay Pay.
Apple Pay Pay will also not allow payment with a credit card, or a credit or debit card, but it will allow a payment from an Apple Pay-enabled card.
The only other payment option available for Apple Pay users will be Apple Pay or Apple Pay Express, which will allow you to make a payment using both Apple Pay’s Pay and Apple PayExpress.
Apple will make the Passcard available to the public on August 31, 2018, with a free upgrade to the Pass card for existing users.
The first 10,000 users will have access to the new Apple Pay service as well.
