Once a card has the chip and pin, if you attempt to swipe, the machine will force you to use the chip. You will only be able to swipe after multiple failed chip attempts (or if chip support has not yet been set up on the machine).I've had a chip card for almost 5 years now and have only swiped a few times when stores aren't equipped yet.
Maybe it's for "above street level" mapping for a low flying vehicle or hover vehicle. Similar to Google Street View, but more detailed to capture low level obstacles and exact dimensions of streets for easier navigation.
I've had an issue where an app will already be downloaded by another member of the family. When I try to download it, it won't let me and goes into this loop of trying and failing to download. I've had to remove family sharing from my device and download the app on my own, and then reconnect to family sharing. I've noticed a number of people have experienced this as I tried to search for a solution to the problem.
Most credit card companies have this embedded within their cards now, and Canadian banks have their debit cards equipped as well. Essentially, you can tap or just hold it near the device and it receives the signal transmitted from the chip/NFC. Chip cards are safer to use as it is more difficult to duplicate than a magnetic strip and you use your PIN as verification instead of a signature.Now my question is, is there a cap on the amount allowed via Apple Pay? I know there...
The iPad is owned and operated by the store. You complete your transaction on the iPad, using iPhone or Apple watch as your credit card.If the store's iPad doesn't have nfc, then they would need a separate little terminal for the "tap" function (similar to how stores have it now, with separate debit/credit terminals, and then a "tap"/"pay pass" type device)Edit: exactly Jordan.murry
The iPads should include nfc so they can be used as Point of Sale terminals in stores. A simple communication from iPhone/Apple watch to an iPad and the transaction is complete without a bunch of separate parts
However, the problem still remains of a thief simply turning off the device.... Should have to enter your passcode or Touch ID to turn off a device.
As a paramedic, this is a great resource to have available. Another area I'd like to see added is a health card number. Although it is quite private and shouldn't be shared, a health card number allows for quicker access to medical records in emergency situations. Overall though, this is a great thing to have available. I hope lots of people use this.
Just download it through iTunes.
I never understood the need for the lock button to be on the side. When I'm locking my device, it's to put it down/away so it doesn't have to be one handed. I feel like it will get more accidental presses while on the side.
