  • If your card issuer doesn’t support these updates, you might need to remove the card and add it again.

  • On your Apple Watch with Wrist Detection on, you need to enter your passcode every time you put on your Apple Watch.
  • You can mark your device as lost, which automatically turns off Apple Pay on your device.
  • You can also call your card issuer to suspend or remove cards from Apple Pay.
