Simple Troubleshooting Tips for Card Addition Issues
Ensure that iCloud is signed in across all your devices. On your iOS device, setting up a Face ID, Touch ID, or a passcode is essential. Similarly, on your Apple Watch, establishing a passcode is necessary. Remember, if you sign out of iCloud or remove your passcode, all credit, debit, prepaid public transport, and student ID cards associated with that device will also be removed.
For those under 13 years old, Apple Pay won't be accessible, prohibiting the addition of cards via the Wallet app. Age restrictions may vary depending on the country or region.
Please note that specific limitations apply in certain regions.
