Question: How do you change the phone number that is sent the verification code when adding a card?

My old phone number couldn’t receive text messages, so I changed my SIM and number. However, now that I want to add a card to Apple Pay now that I have a new phone, it sends the verification code to my old number.


How can I change the number that is sent the verification code?

Hi


The verification process for Apple Pay is handled by your card issuer / bank.


Text message verification involves the issuer sending a message to the mobile / cell phone number that they (not Apple) have on record for you. If you are not receiving the text message, check and update the card issuer's records.


If you call your card issuer (rather than, for example, updating your contact details online), they may also be able to offer verification by phone instead.
