Apple’s much-anticipated mobile payment system, Apple Pay, officially launched Monday, Oct. 20, allowing millions of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ users to make point-of-sale purchases using their devices. Unlike other mobile wallet systems, such as PayPal and Google Wallet, Apple Pay incorporates users’ existing credit and debit cards, allowing users to virtually switch between cards prior to making a purchase.
