We’ve talked about Apple Pay quite a large number of times until now, mostly due to the fact that the concept really has enough potential to change the world of digital payments and how they’re made. However, ever since Apple Pay was first announced over in September 2014, there’s been no news related to its international releases, which got some people to raise questions about whether the system was failing in the US and Apple did not want to release it in other countries as well.
Based on what has been outlined so far, you’d be happy to know that Apple is actually much closer to releasing Apple Pay internationally now than ever. It seems like the service will be released over in Canada sometime in March and that just a couple of months later, that it should be available in a couple of more big countries such as the United Kingdom, Australia, France, Germany and more, which is good news for people from all around the world.
The plans are also somehow confirmed based on the idea that after checking the job vacancies for Apple, we’ve discovered that the company has tried to assemble a team for Apple Pay in a couple of different countries in Europe, but also in the Middle East, India and Asia.
A good idea that should be kept in mind is the fact that launching Apple Pay at around the same time with the commercial release of the Apple Watch will most probably make sense, since the Apple Watch will also have Apple Pay over on it.
