Apple is working hard on upgrading Apple Pay with new features, where the most notable possible addition would be support for mobile websites, a report said Wednesday.
In a report published by Re/code, the iPhone maker has already notified potential partners that Apple Pay will soon support purchases placed through the Web. This will be a completely new path to payment for iPhone and iPad users.
Upon its launch, Apple Pay for The Web would be limited to transactions conducted through Safari on iOS, on Touch ID-equipped iPhones and iPads.
When it comes to the release date, the report predicts that we will see Apple Pay for The Web before this year’s holiday season, while it might be announced during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference.
Apple Pay is Cupertino’s effort into entering the digital payment field. Even though the project was slow to start, the company has been putting a lot of effort into reshaping and expanding its abilities during the previous year. Even though it was initially available in America, Apple extended support to the UK, Canada, and Australia during the last six months. The latest addition was China, where this service supports 80 percent of the country’s issued credit and debit cards.
