Apple Pay (pictured being demonstrated by Apple's Eddy Cue) is the firm¿s new payment system compatible with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch. If an iPhone is lost, users can suspend all payments via Find my iPhone . This won¿t cancel the cards because card details themselves are not stored on that device
