Apple Pay allows 12 cards, on newer devices

This must have changed with a newer version of iOS. It is 8 cards max on the original Apple Pay, and apparently on iPhone 7 and earlier.

 

Now on iPhone 8 or later, or Apple Watch 3 or later, the Wallet can handle up to 12 credit cards. The addition of my Apple Card a few months ago makes 9 CC on my iPhone, and that does not count Apple Cash, which may make it 10.

Most people only have a few cards and wouldn't come close.

Does the # include passes?

I don't think so. I have something like a dozen passes, including Walgeens rewards card, Panera rewards, Delta SkyMiles membership card, multiple Starbucks cards, and those are all in a separate area of the Wallet. You scroll up or down, and look at either credit / payment cards as a group ( which should be the 8 or 12 ) and the Passes / membership cards as a group. I am not aware of a limit on number of passes.

True. The advantage is, some cards in corner cases can do good rewards, but if in the SD, can't be whipped out. Having them in the Apple Wallet is a convenience.

If i were a negative nancy I would say it would be to force people to upgrade to new devices.

Gonna have to try to add more. I have an XS Max and set up Wallet while on iOS 12.x.x and the max was 8 cards. Maybe now on iOS 13 I can add a few more Smiley Happy
