In today’s earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that Apple Pay will be rolling out in Brazil soon. While he didn’t give us an exact date, Cook said it would be coming soon.
Apple Pay is the company’s solution to the wallet, allowing you to store your credit and debit cards virtually. With iOS 11, Apple introduced Apple Pay Cash which allows users to send and receive money simply by sending an iMessage. Apple Pay lead Jennifer Bailey recently said that Apple Pay is now accepted at 50% of stores in the United States.
It’s unclear if Apple Pay Cash will be coming to Brazil.
Apple Pay is available on the iPhone 6 or higher, Apple Watch, and all iPads that support Touch ID. It’s also available on the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar natively, or via an Apple Watch.
Country wise, Apple Pay is available in Australia, Japan, Taiwan, China, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Denmark, Isle of Man, Spain, Finland, Italy, Sweden, France, Jersey, Switzerland, Guernsey, Russia, United Kingdom, Ireland, San Marino, Vatican City, United Arab Emirates, Canada, and the United States.
