Apple Pay Activated in Saudi Arabia.
Shopping sprees just got a lot easier in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia using your Apple iPhone!
Well, technically you can use all apple products from the Apple watch to an iMac or laptop to make your purchases. These are the steps you need to make the most of the service:
- add your credit or debit cards to your Apple wallet app.
- swing your phone at the cashier to show how tech-savvy you are making the purchase while weirding out everyone around you.
Basically, that’s it! and it works like magic, just be aware that you need to find these signs at the points where Apple pay is accepted.
Also of note, you can confirm your payments using your fingerprint or face ID, long gone are the days of entering a four digit number like simpletons and all you need to do is smile for the camera.
We can keep going and going about how this service is great and how it is much safer than traditional purchasing methods but who really cares about that? It’s just so darn cool! “If you do care, then you should read more about the benefits of using the service from the official Apple website”
Not surprisingly people living in Saudi Arabia have expressed their excitement about Apple pay and reacted favorably towards it alongside companies starting its promotional rounds around this service.
