Apple Pay rumored to launch in Switzerland on WWDC keynote day, June 13th

“Apple Pay may be about to launch in its seventh region as soon as next week, according to Swiss finance website,” Zac Hall reports for 9to5Mac.

“The report believes Apple will bring its mobile payment service to customers in Switzerland on Monday, June 13th, which happens to be the date of Apple’s next keynote event at the start of WWDC,” Hall reports. “Apple Pay potentially reaching Switzerland follows a recent promise from the company to rapidly expand into more markets across Europe and Asia as well as reports of slow adoption outside of the US.”

Hall reports, “Aside from Switzerland (and likely more countries) probably gaining Apple Pay soon, the mobile payment service is rumored to add person-to-person payment transfers over iMessage between users on iOS 10, and Apple Pay payments on the web are also expected this year.”

MacDailyNews Take: Yes, when Apple Pay launches in Switzerland, expect it to launch concurrently in other countries.


  1. Great timing, I’m spending July in Switzerland!!

    (I know it already works there for visitors, but when it’s supported locally, employees are more aware of it and it’s less awkward)

  2. Meanwhile, the Merchant Consortium Exchange today told beta testers that it is suspending its CurrentC beta test on June 28 and postponing all further releases of the payments platform.
