I'm guessing another factor may be that the quarter ends right before the launch of the new model. I'm sure a look at Q1 2015 will show a big spike in iPad sales. »
Just got back from trying this out at Whole Foods. My primary card is my checking account and, while ApplePay went through flawlessly, I did have to put my PIN in at the terminal.
