Mobile payment systems have really taken off in Australia — all of the major banks now have them and Apple has followed suit with Apple Pay. If you’ve just purchased your first iPhone or are unfamiliar with how this feature works, the following infographic explains everything you need to know; from setting up Apple Pay on different devices to making your first contactless payment.
