Fresh & Fit Friday (Getting On Board with the New Apple iPhone?)

The new Apple iPhone has reached 39.3 million sales, including nearly two weeks of sales for the new iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus. Are you getting on board?

A New Way to Pay is Here.

What is Apple Pay? 

Apple has introduced a new way to make payments:  Apple Pay. This feature allows iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners to spend money at participating brick and mortar stores simply by using their phones' fingerprint scanner and holding the phone to the register. Apple Pay sends payment information through radio waves. The message is transported from a chip inside the iPhone 6 to the register. NFC, Near Field Communication, is only available in the newest iPhones. 

The payment is then taken directly from your credit or debit card - whatever you have set up with Apple.
