APPLE PAY: CO-INVENTED BY A GIKIAN


Apple’s CEO Tim Cook introduced their latest innovation to the world as “Apple Pay” on 9th September 2014 at the launch of iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch. Cook said that “this will leave a permanent mark on the way all of us buy things.”   Ahmer Ali Khan, Co-inventor Apple Pay, is the only Pakistani out of seven pioneers of Apple’s new technology. Khan, now 38, graduated from Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology in 2002 where he was known as “The Programmer”. Later he moved to Silicon Valley where his career took off.   Working in ViVOtech, Khan structured a model for building a smart-phone based payment system. In 2011, Apple selected Khan to apply his theory into practice. In February 2014, Khan along with other six inventors had filed a patent for what the world now know as “Apple Pay”.   The recent technology allows its user to merely hold his Apple gadget, an iPhone or the Apple Watch to a contactless reader to make payments. Transmission is confirmed through a small beep or vibration. Phone camera is used to feed credit and debit cards information to the device’s Passbook app. All transactions are totally private and secure, says Apple.   For more details visit: http://newsweekpakistan.com/dont-leave-home-without-it/ http://www.dawn.com/news/1138799/pakistani-co-invented-apples-latest-innovation-report ...
