If you have been wanting to use Apple Pay to make purchases within the App Store, iTunes, Apple Music, and even iCloud purchases, the wait is over.
Apple recently updated its support document for official payment methods tied to an Apple ID. In it, the company confirms that you can now use Apple Pay for a variety of purchases now, ranging from the App Store to iCloud purchases. This is a server-side change in the United States, Canada, Singapore, Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates, Russia, and Ukraine. It may take some time, even if you are in these regions, to see the changes go into effect.
If you want to add a new payment method, or check to see what you have in place already, do this: Settings –> iTunes & App Store. Once you’ve made it this far, tap on your Apple ID email –> View Apple ID –> Manage Payments –> Add Payment Method. There will be a new “Found in Wallet” section, which you can add to or change as you see fit.
In addition to that, if you are in the United States you can now add Apple Pay Cash to your Apple ID as well.
There are some inherent benefits to using Apple Pay for these kinds of purchases, including security. It’s good to see Apple finally adding this for users.
