Everyone’s buzzing over Apple’s grand reveal of the “Apple Watch” this morning. Well, that little gadget around your wrist might shake up the restaurant industry as you’ll be able to pay for your food with it.
Making payments with cards were the fast alternative to paying with paper money. Now cards will seem old fashioned as the power of payment will reside on your wrist. The Verge reported that through “Apple Pay” you’ll be able to store all your cards on the iPhone or Apple Watch, wave it by the store’s compatible reader and your food will be paid for. Apple CEO Tim Cook said it really is that easy and this process should replace the over 50-year-old credit card method of payment.
There are already restaurants lining up to team up with Apple as McDonald’s, Subway and Panera Bread are among those who are integrating Apple Pay into their restaurants.
The big focus of Apple’s reveal was security, and through its “Secure Element,” Cook said that Apple Pay will be much safer than a credit card.
So as soon as 2015, when the Apple products are released, you can be that douche paying for everything with his watch and pretending to be a spy.
