Apple Pay has been expanding across the United States, and the globe, quickly. And Apple announced a brand new market as well.
Apple has confirmed it will be launching in Japan this October. Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will support Japan’s form of NFC, FeliCa, as will the new Apple Watch Series 2. It will allow mobile payments in the region with Apple Pay.
Apple Maps is also bringing Transit to Japan at the same time.
