New service lets iPhone and Apple Watch owners turn their device into their personal wallet.
Apple Pay is finally arriving in Ireland and iPhone owners will be able to make Visa and MasterCard purchases at thousands of retail locations around Ireland, just as they would with their contactless cards.
The launch of Apple Pay in Ireland has been three years in the making since it was first revealed at Apple’s iPhone event in September 2014. In that time, the service has launched in the larger markets such as the US, the UK and various other countries around the world.
However, despite waiting all this time, its arrival is something of an anticlimax.
