Apple Reportedly Partnering With Visa, MasterCard, AmEx for iPhone 6 Payments

Mashable reports that Apple is partnering with major credit card brands for a mobile phone payment system in the up-coming iPhone 6.




According to reports from Bloomberg and other outlets, Apple has partnered with Visa, MasterCard and American Express to create a mobile payment platform, allowing users to pay with their iPhones in brick and mortar stores.

Google Wallet is an NFC-enabled mobile payment platform that has been around for a while now but just hasn’t quite caught on. Retailers could be partly to blame as some have been slow to adopt the new technology.

However, Visa and MasterCard have set an October 2015 deadline for U.S. retailers to make the switch from reading cards via magnetic strips to using newer embedded chips.
