The ambitious and up to now successful bets on mobile payments from Apple continues its course with a constant growth and new partners who will be joining the platform every week, demonstrating that Apple Pay It is one of the most successful products of the company.
This Friday Tim Cook in the framework of the Summit of cyber security convened by the Government of President Barack Obama, Apple CEO announced breakthroughs for its payments platform, among which is the support for payments by the Government of the United States.
The Obama Government gives Apple an important vote of confidence
The announcement on Friday mentioned that Apple Pay will be compatible with debit and credit cards issued to veterans, as well as those who receive income through social security, granting the possibility of adding these and all cards issued by the federal Government to Apple Pay platform to make payments through the Apple devices wirelessly.
On the other hand, also be possible to pay with our iPhone or Apple Watch with Apple Pay in national parks of the American nation, that in addition to the transactions carried out by federal payments cards, we are talking about more than 87 million equivalent transactions to 26 thousand $ 400 million annually.
The above represents a strong vote of confidence to Apple by the Government, who has mentioned that Apple Pay is a safe and reliable means for transactions since unlike traditional credit cards, Apple Pay never reveals the number full of the business card and not stored records of purchases.
Tim Cook mentioned:
“We imagine that one day in the not-too-distant future the wallet will become a memory of the past. A future where our passport, driver’s license and other important documents you can store digitally safely and with ease of access for all.”
This support is expected to be available during the next fall.
