The two companies will offer a new method that will allow iPhone users to make contactless payments using the iPhone and an Apple certified hardware accessory. The accessory will likely be a case.

 

Using the accessory the user can pay for items with a linked Visa card wherever terminals with contactless technology is available. There is also mention of a memory card for other devices to allow the same functionality.
