New Ads Show Apple Pay as More Secure Than Credit Cards

Apple has just published three new ads on its YouTube channel in the United Kingdom, that highlight the security benefits of Apple Pay as compared to conventional credit cards (via MacRumors).

Apple’s new ads emphasize that physical credit cards can be stolen, or used by anyone, which leaves your card number exposed to other people. Apple says that all these security risks can easily be avoided by using Apple Pay on your iPhone or Apple Watch.

Last week, Apple Pay went down in Canada for some users. One of the users noted that some iOS 16 beta users are experiencing Apple Pay issues with American Express terminals. The issue was later found to be affecting iOS 15 as well.

With the Rogers outage last week affecting the entire INTERAC network, and this recent Apple Pay issue, it’s a good reminder to always have some cash on hand, still.
