It also works on devices like the Apple Watch Series 7, allowing customers to pay quickly for goods and services on the go with Face ID or Touch ID. It also works online so customers can pay for goods on e-commerce sites across the internet in the same way.
Apple confirmed in a support document that customers may need to enter their pin for purchases of over 1000 Leu.
