Is that a graphics driver on your shop's register – or a RAM-slurping bank card thief?

So use ApplePay

Use ApplePay or some similar scheme, where no information that the PoS receives can be used to get more money out of a card.

Although a PoS that is completely under control of a hacker might make payments from the customer to the hacker, instead of customer to merchant. But that would be a problem for the merchant, not the customer, so even then ApplePay would be safe for the customer, and wouldn't be the cause of the problem for the merchant.
