Apple Pay may finally debut in Japan with Sony partnership

Wayfair now offers Apple Pay on the Web, a move that will help shoppers make easy, secure and private payments in Safari on iPhone, iPad and Mac. iPhone 7, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users already benefit from Apple Pay support on the Wayfair, Joss & Main and AllModern mobile apps.

Japanese consumers will have to be patient, however.

The launch of Apple Pay in Japan makes it the latest global expansion of the payment method since its launch in 2014.

To make this happen, Apple's new iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 will include a special Sony chip - called FeliCa - that is compatible with these systems. Now, Nikkei Asian Review reports that Apple is planning to partner with Sony to bring the technology to the iPhone next year. Users will be able to commute and pay for everyday items with Suica from JR East, as well as make credit and prepay card purchases in stores, apps and on the web with a single touch. A transit feature inApple Maps will also launch in Japan. It now has more than five times the volume from a year ago, and is adding one million users per week.

Goicechea says the virus is not usually seen in this part of the state but can be easily prevented through the vaccination. State health officials said Tuesday that the case brings to six the number of West Nile cases reported in Montana.

Apple Pay is live at over 11 million contactless locations worldwide, with 3 million in the US alone. As Phil Schiller touted on stage today, over 90% of wireless transactions are made with Apple Pay.

"In the United States, merchants tell us that over 90% of wireless transactions and contactless payment are now made with Apple Pay- it is a huge hit", Schiller added. If your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch is ever lost, you can use Find My iPhone to put your device in Lost Mode to suspend Apple Pay, or you can wipe your device clean completely.

By paying with Apple Pay, your transactions are encrypted between your devices and Apple Pay servers, and the online merchant won't need to save your actual credit card number, adding another layer of protection. Apple Pay on the web will allow secure purchases for even more customers.
