apple expands ‘tap to pay’ iphone-to-iphone payment feature to apple stores across the us

Apple has started to expand its new “Tap to Pay on iPhone” feature to Apple Store retail locations across the US, marking an internal expansion after it was discovered earlier this month that the upcoming feature was being trialed at the Apple Park Visitor Center ahead of its official public debut some point this year.

Apple announced its new “Tap to Pay on iPhone” feature in February. The feature will theoretically turn the iPhone into a payment terminal, with businesses able accept Apple Pay, contactless credit and debit cards, and other digital wallets through a simple tap to their iPhone.

Available in the US at launch, “Tap to Pay on iPhone” will be available for payment platforms and app developers to integrate into their iOS apps, launching firstly with support from Stripe followed by Adyen before the year’s end.

Apple’s tap to pay acceptance directly on iPhone is rolling out across its stores beginning today. Was tested earlier at the store at its HQ. More on the feature: https://t.co/rPoYgSIKXo https://t.co/XqfBOOdFQ5

Apple is yet to confirm when the new “Tap to Pay on iPhone” feature will launch, but considering the iPhone maker is now testing the feature at stores across the US, it seems like it won’t be long before we hear more about the release and when other business will be able to begin accepting payments via the contactless system.
