Apple’s upgraded version of Safari browser is equipped with credit card scanning functionality feature to make buying stuff online even simpler.
This new feature allows users to scan a credit card with the device’s camera instead of manually entering the credit card number when completing an online purchase, as reported by 9 to5mac..
The latest version of iOS 8 will feature the new Safari browser which has option to select "Scan Credit Card" and click a picture of the card automatically to facilitate optical character recognition.
