When will you be able to buy iPhones and iPads with Apple Pay on your iPhone?
That’s what Apple is working on.
Apple Pay is currently in the works, but we’ve been told the company is looking at all of the major US cities for the first time and are now “in the final stages of the implementation”.
“We have a very large team that’s working on Apple Pay and we’ve got to move it along quickly,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said on stage during the company’s WWDC keynote.
“We want to have the ability to pay in the United States, so we’re making progress.”
But, as it stands, Apple Pay has been limited to select cities in the US.
Apple said it was “working with local banks to make the system more robust and flexible” but declined to comment on when that would be.
How much is Apple Pay worth?
You can buy Apple Pay at select stores, including Apple’s stores in the UK and Ireland, or in the Apple retail stores in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and the US – but only if you are a Apple Pay customer in those countries.
You can also use Apple Pay to pay for things like a Netflix subscription, with Apple said to be working on plans for Apple Pay “on the consumer side”.
Apple Pay can only be used at Apple Stores in the USA, Australia, Belgium, China (Mainland), Denmark, France (Mainlanders), Germany, India (Mainlands), Japan (Mainers), Mexico, Netherlands, New York (Mainels), Poland, Portugal, Singapore (Mainel), South Africa, Sweden (Maineland), Switzerland, Taiwan (Mainelt), and the UK (Mainellers).
You can even use Apple Pass to pay with Apple Watch and other Apple products.
But if you’re looking to use Apple Watch to pay at a shop, Apple says the app can’t accept Apple Pay.
If you’re in the Netherlands, you can still use Apple Wallet to pay, but the service isn’t available there.
Apple’s official Apple Watch app also won’t accept Pay.
And, to top it all off, Apple is only launching Apple Pay in select cities this week.
Apple is also working on a new payment option for iPhone owners, Apple Watch owners, and Apple Watch accessories.
It’s being dubbed the “Apple Pay for Accessories” program, and it will allow you to pay your Apple Watch, iPhone, or accessory with Apple Cash or Pay.
It will be available for both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.
But Apple’s Apple Watch accessory payment option has been in the pipeline for quite some time, and its arrival will make Apple Pay easier to use for users.
If this is your first time using Apple Pay, Apple has provided a handy guide to the process.
If Apple Pay isn’t for you, there’s still a number of other ways to use the app.
For starters, if you have a Samsung Galaxy, iPhone or iPad with a 3.5mm jack, you should still be able use Apple’s app to pay.
Apple Wallet has been around for a while, and you can even get Apple Pay using a third-party service like Amazon Payments.
But the app also supports a wide variety of third-parties like Paypal, Square Cash, and Mastercard.
Apple also said it will soon make Apple Music compatible with Apple Pass.
Apple Watch compatibility with Apple Music will come next, though the company hasn’t announced any further details.
