Apple has launched a new “Apple Wallet” webpage highlighting the growing number of Wallet app features on the iPhone and Apple Watch. The company also redesigned the Apple Pay website, advertising the benefits of Apple’s mobile payment platform.
On the page Apple Wallet we find many puns, with the company explaining how this app on iPhone and Apple Watch allows you to store debit and credit cards, transit cards, boarding passes and more, “tall in one place“. Obviously, the focus on privacy and security could not be missing:
Wallet takes full advantage of the privacy and security built into iPhone, designed to protect your identity and keep what’s yours safe. When you make a purchase, Apple Pay uses a unique transaction code, so your card number is never shared with a merchant or put on Apple’s servers. And you don’t need to carry physical cards or touch buttons with you to stores. So it is safe to say that you will feel more confident.
Part of the goal of these new web pages is to better differentiate the functions of Apple Wallet and Apple Pay, platforms often confused with each other:
Apple Pay is the secure way to pay and make contactless purchases in stores and on the web. Apple Wallet is where you keep your credit or debit cards so you can use them with Apple Pay.
The new website of Apple Pay features a revamped design, complete with a double-click animation when loading the page for the first time. Here, Apple highlights some Apple Pay features like:
- Faster and easier than using cards or cash.
- Accepted by over 85% of retailers in the United States
- Safer than touching buttons and exchanging cash.
- Integrated privacy and security.
