Apple users in South Korea can now rejoice as Apple Pay is finally set to launch in the country after years of waiting. In an official announcement, Apple revealed that it would support in-store, in-app, and online purchases.
The announcement came as part of the press release for the latest iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, which also stated that the company is “about to launch” Apple Pay in South Korea. Korean users will be able to enjoy easy, fast, and secure payments using Apple Pay on their iPhones, including the new iPhone Yellow, as well as on online merchants and apps.
Despite the exciting news, there is still no official launch date for Apple Pay in South Korea. Originally, Apple Pay was expected to launch in South Korea in November 2022. However, the launch was delayed due to demands from the local regulator Financial Supervisory Service Commission (FSS).
Apple Pay is an electronic payment system that allows users to make transactions using their iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac. It is a secure and convenient way to pay for goods and services, without the need for physical cash or credit cards.
With Apple Pay, users can store their payment information securely on their devices and make payments with just a touch of a finger or face recognition. It also supports a variety of payment methods, including credit and debit cards, rewards cards, and transit cards.
