Many of you are iPhone people, and you sometimes ask me to check your phone's settings. Recently, almost every iPhone I look at is prompting the owner to set up
, a system to use your iPhone to pay for purchases with stored credit cards.
Apple really wants you to use Apple Pay, but a lot of people (me included)
aren't yet comfortable with the process
. So, here are the steps to stop your phone from nagging you to set up Apple Pay:
The first step is actually pretty counter-intuitive. You have to
accept the prompt to set up Apple Pay
(either from the popup nag message, or from tapping on settings and doing it there), and, at the first screen, click
"Set up later in Wallet"
. After you've done that, you should:
Go to Settings > Notifications > Wallet, turn "Allow Notifications" off
Go to Settings > Wallet & Apple Pay, turn "Double-Click Home Button" off
Go to Settings > Safari, scroll to the bottom, turn "Check for Apple Pay" off
The whole process only takes a few minutes, but if you need my help with any of this just hand me your phone next time I'm at your place!
