Install iOS 15.6.1 for Tap to Pay Support

Install iOS 15.6.1 for Tap to Pay Support

If you're interested in turning your iPhone into a standalone point-of-sale terminal, and you missed iOS 15.6, iOS 15.5, iOS 15.4.1 and iOS 15.4, you'll want to make the move to iOS 15.6.1 at some point. 

iOS 15.4 brought support for Apple's new Tap to Pay feature. If you're unfamiliar, this lets anyone with an iPhone XS or newer accept payments simply by tapping a contactless credit or debit card on the device. No additional hardware is required.

The feature works with popular cards like American Express, Discover, Mastercard and Visa.

Note that the feature does require support from third-parties so it will take a bit for everything to ramp up. That said, companies like Stripe are currently testing the function so it'll only be a matter of time before support is widespread.

    Thx for this! I think I’ll stay with 14.8 for the foreseeable, eh. More and more storage on my poor old 6s is being used by all these ‘great’ upgrades. You’d think they want me to buy a new phone. Lol❤️❤️

    After installing the 15.1.1, mu iPhone 12 has slowed down considerably and sometimes freezes or won’t open different apps at all! I really wish I hadn’t updated it!

    After downloading iOS 15.1 on my iPad Pro the SD card camera adapter isn’t recognised! I work as part time photographer, and always download to iPad. How do I get this to work again please, I use it every day. It was fine on earlier versions. I don’t use a laptop. Depend on my trusty iPad Pro.
    Thanks for any help.

    Unfortunately I got sucked in into upgrading my iPhone 8 to the iOS 15.3 Version and imo it’s the absolute WORST update that iOS has put out there.
    Waaay too many BUGS and Glitches, especially with the Keyboard and it’s Cursor when trying to place the Cursor. But there’s also a Ton of other Bugs.
    It just sucks that Apple Won’t allow us to Go Back to whatever Previous Version that we want.
    Totally feels like Apple is Pushing people into Buying New Phones with All these Buggy Updates hurting our phones!!
    If it wasn’t the case, then I see absolutely No Reason that Apple Can’t create an Update that has NO BUGS, especially with all the Technology out there.
    Seems like almost every Update has Bugs and I feel that there’s No Reason for it.
    Can’t Apple just hire people who KNOW what they’re doing in order to Create an Update WITHOUT BUGS!?
    I’m almost ready to make a Switch and say Adios Apple!
