In addition to NFC-based payment systems like Apple Pay, Square's new reader also supports EMV chip cards, which are still fairly new in the U.S. All a merchant has to to is connect their iPhone or iPad to the reader, set up a Square profile, and they can easily start accepting payments.
While it is currently available in Apple Retail Stores, Square's contactless reader does is not yet available in Apple's online store.
