    What's the difference ? I can pay with Touch ID in the appstore so how does ApplePay make it any different ?

    Disassociation from your actual credit card info, I think.

    So I can delete my old payment and billing info from my account ?

    From what account? Apple Store?

    In the end, your CC info isn't actually transmitted over the internet. Just a transaction ID and biometric ID is used. Remember how many companies are reporting breaches in payment servers?

    I think...this is what :apple:Pay defeats.

    That was a pretty well written article that I think should be shared in every thread related to ApplePay because most people can have they're questions answered from there.

    Apple Pay isn't used in the App Store. It can be used in the APPLE Store. So, not to buy apps, but to buy Apple products.
