To me, this is not really Apple PAY... it is "Touch ID Authentication".
As I understand it, no money will be passing through the iPhone. Instead, the ATM will simply be accepting the user's fingerprint -- via Touch ID -- as a substitute for a physical ATM card. Maybe the answer lies in packaging: Apple has packaged NFC + TouchID in a single Apple Pay framework for developers, even though you can use it for situations that don't really involve a payment?

This is definitely a problem.
While I love my AirPods overall (in terms of convenience), they + iPhone 6s + Apple Watch + WiFi (sometimes) show 3 problems for me:
- AirPods disconnect from phone calls.
- AirPods disconnect from playing the Music or Podcasts app (and thus pause the playback)
- AirPods have frequently gaps/skips/blips in music playback
I'm not badmouthing AirPods; I love the vision and the convenience. But we also need to be honest and transparent about the shortcomings of v1 so that Apple engineers can continue improving them.
