    Can someone help me please?!

    I just received a new debit card from my bank.

    The actual card number is the same - all thats changed is the expiry date and the 3 digit security number on the back of the card. My old card (which is still in date) is on my Apple Pay on my iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2 however I see no option to edit these details?

    How do I update my card on Apple Pay, to update this to the new details (I only see options to "Add" and "Remove" cards within Apple Pay)?

    :(

    You don't have to do anything. There are no actual CC info/details on your iPhone for you to change or edit. It is just a 'token' number assigned by your bank and info is updated on the backend.

    ...ok, that's good to know. I thought Apple Pay would store the expiry date of the card though - does it not do this?

    Again there is NO CC info of any kind stored on your iPhone. There is just a token number assigned by your bank to your iPhone. There is NO identifying information of any kind in this token number and it is only relevant to your bank and your bank decides whether the token is good (accepted) or not (declined). There are no dates, no names, no provider info, no codes, no......, nothing about your CC on your iPhone, just the token number. The only relevance Apple has is assigning a matching icon to your token number at setup so you can identify which CC your are using (even Apple can't identify the token info after setup). This is the ONLY identifier involved.

    You can't change something that does not exist.

    As was previously mentioned, the DAN will usually not change. The banks can update the card that you see in the Wallet app (like the last 4 digits of the associated physical card that is shown), but that is only cosmetic. Unless you see a message in Wallet that the card has been invalidated, you don't need to do anything.
