This is how you’ll use Apple Pay at McDonald’s

Apple Pay is coming, even to the McDonald’s drive through. With the mobile payment service set to launch as early as Saturday, the fast food giant is training employees on how the system will work. Some of the materials were leaked to 9to5Mac. As you can see from the image above, customers won’t have to hand over their expensive iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus to make a payment.

Over the weekend we detailed how Apple and retailers are preparing for Apple Pay, the iPhone 6 and Touch ID-secured mobile payment system launching as soon as this week, including the setup process through Passbook. At launch Apple Pay will be supported by a number of retailers, restaurants and more including McDonald’s which plans to even accept Apple Pay from your iPhone 6 at the drive through. The process of paying with your $650+ smartphone at a fast food drive through could potentially be risky if you have to hand over your iPhone to the window attendant, but McDonald’s training materials (received by 9to5Mac and seen above) for accepting mobile payments including Apple Pay show employees instead extending card readers to customers from the drive through window.
