Apple Pay has been launched in Australia and New Zealand and has already been accepted as a payment method on the mobile phone network.
The launch of Apple Pay in Australia is a significant milestone for Apple, with the company’s mobile payment service gaining mainstream acceptance in the country after more than a year of testing.
Apple Pay’s popularity has been boosted by a number of factors including the launch of a smartphone app, which allows people to use their mobile phones as payment terminals.
Apple Pay also has support for the Apple Watch, making it a natural fit for Australians with Apple Watches.
The launch in Australia comes amid growing interest in Apple Pay, with many users also using it as a way to buy things online.
According to Apple, Apple Pay is the world’s first mass-market payment service, offering the convenience of credit card payments with the security of an Apple Pay device.
Apple said it was pleased to be able to offer Apple Pay as a service in Australia, and encouraged customers to make Apple Pay their preferred payment method.
Apple also said the company was confident in the ability of its customers to use Apple Pay to make purchases at their local shops.
In addition, the company said that Apple Pay would be used to make payments at major retailers in Australia from the middle of next month.
Apple Watch sales are also forecast to increase by more than 10 per cent in Australia next year, according to research firm IDC.
IDC forecasts that Apple Watch sales will reach 1.5 million in 2018, up from 1.2 million in 2017.
