Tyro unlocks iOS Tap to Pay for Australian customers 

Australians using the Tyro Payments network can now securely transact with their iPhones after the company announced its app is now compatible with iOS. 

Through the Tyro BYO mobile app, users can utilise any iPhone’s Tap-to-Pay functionality to make contactless payments. Additional payment options that can be onboarded on to the Tyro app include credit and debit cards, as well as digital wallets. 

Checkouts will be able to accept contactless transactions without the need to install additional hardware, using only NFC technology to process customer payments without storing any information on Apple servers.

Jon Davey, CEO of Tyro, commented: “Tap to Pay on iPhone is a fantastic simple and secure way for new or existing Tyro customers to accept payments using only their iPhone, anytime, anywhere – without the need for additional hardware. 

“We are excited to provide this new offering to our customers, providing greater flexibility when staff are working on-site or on the move. It couldn’t be simpler. Just download the Tyro BYO App to start accepting customer payments on your iPhone in minutes.” 

The contactless payments feature is available on any device with iOS version 16.4 or higher. Signing up can be done by making an account through the Tyro Portal.
