Apple’s mobile payment service is still a little far from gaining the popularity that Apple might have expected, but at this point this is still understandable. At the moment only two generations of iPhone, iPad and one of Apple Watch support it, and Cupertino still needs to add more markets to list. Added availability is key for this product to grow, and we learn of a new move in that particular department.
Trusted sources in Canada claim that Apple Pay will be launching in the market sometime around November 17, which is pretty much today, depending on which time zone you’re in. The source claims that American Express is already preparing for a launch during the day, though it could also mean that Apple Pay will start with a limited launch of just a few banks and credit card services, and where American Express could just be one of them.
Apple is definitely not the pioneer of mobile payment services, but we do have to hand it to Cupertino for how quickly it’s grown in acceptance. This is just another necesary step in that direction.
