Apple has announced exciting plans to introduce Tap to Pay on iPhone, which it will roll out in the US later this year. The new feature will allow businesses small and large to use their iPhone to securely accept Apple Pay, contactless credit and debit cards, and other digital wallets through a simple tap to their iPhone. The best bit? No additional hardware or payment terminal needed, making it unnecessary for merchants to invest in a Square device or a SumUp terminal.
