Apple Pay is among the most popular online mobile payment services out there. First introduced in 2014, Apple’s payment service quickly gained its popularity among customers worldwide, mainly thanks to its ability to work perfectly with Apple devices. Apple Pay is now available in over 20 countries worldwide and Apple is still expanding the service.
Rumors today claim that Apple is planning to bring its online mobile payment service to Germany next month. In fact, this is not the first time we are hearing rumors regarding Apple’s plan to launch Apple Pay in Germany. Back in October 2016, Apple’s own website hinted at the potential arrival of Apple Pay in the country, but Apple has not made any official announcement since then.
According to sources, Apple has been in talks with major banks in Germany in an attempt to bring Apple Pay to the country in September this year. Tech analysts say that Apple’s mobile payment service will allow German customers to add their credit or debit cards to Apple Pay to make purchases online and in-stores. Besides, Apple Pay will only support iPhone and Apple Watch running iOS 11 and watchOS 4 at launch.
Tech analysts say that it’s a matter of time until Apple makes an official announcement about the company’s mobile payment service launching in Germany in September. Some recent reports claim that the Cupertino Company will announce Germany launch of Apple Pay at its iPhone event in September.
Apple is also rumored to launch the company’s mobile payment service in Sweden and Finland in September this year. Apple Pay is expected to arrive in 25 countries by the end of the year. Most recently, Apple Pay launched in Italy and Vatican city, allowing iPhone and Apple Watch owners to add eligible credit and debit cards to the Wallet app for use with Apple Pay in stores across the country.
