Miami parking app revamp adds location services, Apple Pay option

It’s time to update the PayByPhone Miami parking app.

This version of the free app has a slick new design and offers Apple Pay integration. The app now uses location services to prompt a parking extension when it knows you can't walk back to your spot in time.

While the app is free to download, the Miami Parking Authority absorbs the 35-cent fee to park in the city. Miami residents get a 20 percent discount when using PayByPhone in the city.

About two thirds of parkers pay using the app now, according to the City of Miami.
