Also, in addition to the latest1 participating banks to work with Apple Pay, Apple also announced new features at WWDC coming to the mobile payment service with iOS 11 and watchOS 4.
There is a new feature called Person to Person which will also let users send money to friends and family over iMessage using Apple Pay. The new feature will be available on iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch when iOS 11 and watchOS 4 ships later this year.
Apple Pay Cash is also another feature coming this fall. This is a virtual debit card which appears in the Wallet app and hold money which the user can receive from Person to Person transfers. Users can withdraw the money to the bank account, and use it to send it to other people. They can also use it as payment in stores which accept Apple Pay.
Since the launch of Apple Pay in the United States, the payment service has been expanded to Canada, France, Russia, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Australia, Mainland China, Hong Kong, Italy, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, Spain, Ireland, and Taiwan.
Although Apple Pay is available in over a dozen countries around the world, Person to Person and Apple Pay Cash will be limited to users in the United States when it launches. iOs 11 and watchOS 4 are as of now in developer beta phase, and the new Apple Pay features aren’t available to test yet.
