Assumingly you're tapping on the top of the phone but not the Apple logo side, then ideal you shouldn't go all the way to slap your phone against the reader. Maintain a short distance away will help with the handshake.

Just tried with my iPhone 7+, tap centre will kena error/won't read the phone. Offset the phone a little towards the sides of the pad should be ok. Tried 2-3 times during the entry, only 1 try for the exit.

Yup, I was tapping using the top of my phone. Will try to leave a bit of gap the next time, probably why my first few attempts failed.

Registered on Friday and I’ve just tried it on my iPhone on a bus today. Works like a charm! Though I haven’t tried like a hybrid (MRT + bus) ride.

There wouldn’t be any transactions recorded in the Apple Pay wallet but just the usually tick that a transaction is successful.
The transaction with the Virtual Device logo.

i try before the bus stop but the terminal "open" for tap.....about 10-15s to try.....of course you have to be first at the terminal, or at least near enough to try.

That true, but if people have difficulty getting it right, that's a fail on LTA's part imo. People will just gravitate back to what works.


Also, does anyone know where can we submit feedback for this ABT trial?

cannot like that say LTA's fail, so many devices, so many different casing on their devices. and so many patterns from users that dunno where their antenna bands are. how to control that? its like peeing, so many people peeing for decades, urinal basin area always got urine stains.

It's the trial period, so things might be moving slightly slower.
Also, I noticed that they have been upgrading the MRT gantries in the recent weeks. I'm not sure if has improved hardware for these mobile devices.
