You can now scan your credit cards for payments through your iPhone. The feature is in-built and developers do not have to do anything to enable it. Thanks to iOS 8’s extensibility, this feature will function with support of Safari software.

Step #4. Align the camera so the card is inside the framed border.

Step #5. Once your card is framed as required, the camera will take a picture of it.

Step #6. Through its “optical character recognition”, it will fill and generate all details of your card.

Step #7. After this, your details will be filled in the webpage automatically and you just need to pay.

Yes, with next generation software, these types of features are possible, saving your time. You can even save your card’s picture and other details after scanning is done.

iOS 8 is undergoing some other developments and once they are done, this fantastic feature will be open to all. Even Safari has received some up gradation that needs to be carried out.

We hope that this information was useful.

      It’s there if you are using iOS8. If you go to Settings, then Safari then Password and Autofill you will see the option to auto scan your card using the camera or enter the information by hand. Try it!
