“According to Bloomberg, the company is working with Goldman Sachs on a service called ‘Apple Pay Later’ that will allow those with its devices to settle purchases over time, including ones they make at physical shops.

When using the service, the outlet says you’ll have two ways of paying for your purchase. If you pick the ‘Apple Pay in 4’ option, you’ll need to make four interest-free payments across two months.”

“To set up an account on a website or app using a passkey, you first choose a username for the new account, then use FaceID or Touch ID to confirm that it’s really you who’s using the device. You don’t ever pick a password. Your device handles generation and storage of the passkey, which iCloud Keychain synchronizes across all your Apple devices.”
