On account of the partnership with American Express, eligible users in Australia and Canada will gain access to Apple Pay not in a long time from now (this year). The rollout will proceed in Hong Kong, Singapore and Spain in 2016.
Since it was launched, Apple Pay has just been available in the US and UK. While expanding to more “key” countries is something to be thankful for, it’s also still limited to American Express customers to start.
Cook gave no sign when other Visas, banks or financial institutions in these countries would start supporting Apple Pay.
The news of Apple Pay growing to more countries goes ahead the heels of another quarter of record for the Cupertino firm. It clobbered revenue and profit from the same quarter a year ago, sold 48 million iPhones and figured out how to see profit in Mac sales.
iPad sales slipped, as has been the situation for Apple’s slates lately, however the company didn’t appear to be too phased during its other quarterly wins.
