Samsung has just pushed a relatively large update to its mobile payment platform, Samsung Pay. The upgrade brings a handful of much-requested new features to the application, including the facility to pay for goods using your retina on the Galaxy Note 7.

Version 2.3 also transports support for cloud syncing in Samsung Pay. Although, it’s currently restricted to just gift and membership cards as payment details are far too sensitive to be backed up and synced.

There are also a couple of new server-side features listed in the changelog, including the option to purchase gift cards from now-supported retailers and store membership cards from additional issuers.
