Apple Pay for the Web Arrives Tomorrow with Launch of iOS 10
With the launch of the new iOS 10 comes an exciting development in mobile wallet technology: Apple Pay for the web. Starting Tuesday, September 13, select websites will begin supporting Apple Pay on Mac computers in addition to iPads and iPhones.
Wayfair is one of the first retailers to announce Apple Pay integration for its website. The company already has Apple Pay support on its mobile apps for Wayfair, Joss & Main, and AllModern, but this will expand the payment options to Wayfair.com. Rather than using the app to pay for products with Apple Pay, customers can shop conveniently online and verify their identity with Touch ID.
In March, Apple said it would be releasing a web version of its mobile wallet “in the near future,” but there was no specific timeframe for the launch. The Wayfair announcement confirms it will be available with the newest version of Apple’s operating system, along with a completely new interface and many other updates.
Users can technically download iOS 10 right now, but it is a public beta version, not the official release.
