Target just announced its endorsement of Apple Pay, one of the many new tech features that Apple unveiled in its press conference yesterday. Apple Pay will sync up with Target's mobile app in order to never forget your credit card info, ever, ideally making it dangerously faster and easier to buy items from Target's mobile site. It's not the only retailer signing on for Apple Pay: Bloomingdale's, Disney, Sephora, Macy's, and Walgreens have all announced that they'll be working with the new system. This is great because not only will everyone be able to tell who has the new iPhone and who doesn't due to the massive size difference, but the ones who don't convert will also be forced to spend at least 10 more seconds on every mobile checkout.
