    iPhone SE
    v 10.3.3
    Have an Otterbox on mine, especially made for fingerprints so apple pay did work well using it for ages.

    Suddenly about a month ago, 2-3x a day, out of 4-5x its no longer being picked up by cash machines.

    Up until a month ago, I did not carry cash, interac or credit cards but having got stuck 2x now with it not working, I find I have to carry these cards again which goes against the reason for my having apple pay to begin with.

    Has something changed with the recent 10.3.3 version, or.....something else i am not aware of?


    Edit: No I haven't made any changes in how close I hold it to the machine, double clicking, etc. Everything I believe on my end is the same as it was earlier, although I will double check on my next few purchases using it.

    Thats exactly when mine started to develop problems, a few weeks ago with an update.

    I can no longer carry only my iphone when I run out the door for quick shopping excursions.
    Defeating the whole purpose of my using Apple Pay at all.
    Shame :(

    Never had consistent luck using ApplePay so just do not use it.

    I have found that certain terminals don't work with ApplePlay with Debit cards. This used to be true at McDonalds but they upgraded and have worked for a while. A couple of days ago I went into drug store and didn't work with debit card as a matter of fact you couldn't do chip insert with card with the debit - had to do the swipe. Unfortunately, I think we are still away from a reliable ApplePlay - I use when I can but still carry card with me.

    It works flawlessly for me everywhere they accept contactless payments!

    That was one spot mine definitely did not work. I tried 3x and they kept telling me that they accept Apple Pay but mine wouldn't work, about 2-3 weeks ago. So interesting you mention that as well.

    Indeed that was the first problem I had, one day. Had been sick for 2 weeks, unable to eat and the first day i could all I could think of was McDonalds but still weak, I drove to one and they were closed for a problem, went 2 miles to another one, famished and it wouldn't work. I ran to the corner to my bank to get some cash out just so i could eat, but they wont accept it unless you have your card with you LOL i was very frustrated that day :(

    Anyone notice that t doest show the virtual card (Device ID) now on the card picture OR on the store receipts? Mine is showing the last 4 digits of the real card in both places now. Have removed it and added back a few times. I DO get a new virtual card and device ID and my bank shows a virtual card online but everything seems to use the real card info.??
