In fact, Apple Wallet has become an acceptable alternative to a regular wallet. The application stores information about completed transactions, bank accounts, credit, debit and discount cards. The application also contains discount and bonus cards, e-tickets, and coupons. Even more – it is possible to add travel passes, passes and student IDs. The main thing for which the program is valued is the convenience of contactless payment for purchases. Wallet was originally called Passbook and simply stored card information. With the advent of Apple Pay, the situation has changed – the owners of iPhone began to use contactless payment, and to load bonus, payment and credit cards into the program. In 2015, the application was renamed Wallet, and the contactless payment function was also implemented using Apple Watch.

In Russia Apple Pay appeared only in 2016, but in full. Russians immediately got the opportunity to make contactless payments, add and store cards. The application is regularly updated, the manufacturer invests in improved features. For example, the function of viewing the balance on bonus cards recently appeared, and now in Russia they are waiting for the possibility of depositing a student card – so far this is only available in the United States. The app is set to iPhone by default and cannot be uninstalled. And to nothing – otherwise will it stop working Apple Pay? And the smartphone will not be able to conduct contactless payments. This innovation has not yet really taken root in Russia, but has already found a lot of admirers. It is believed that it is more convenient to store dozens of cards in one application than to carry a separate wallet for pieces of cardboard and plastic.
