account forms or repeatedly type in billing information.

Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad
mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any
Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the
payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch.
