Apple says that an ongoing Apple Pay outage is preventing some Apple Card users from paying their bill and accessing other features in the Wallet app on iOS. The outage started Saturday at approximately 8:45am EDT.
Apple Pay, of course, is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Apple Inc. that allows users to make payments in person, in iOS apps, and on the web. It is supported on the iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac. Apple Wallet is a mobile app included with the iOS operating system that allows users to store coupons, boarding passes, student ID cards, event tickets, movie tickets, public transportation tickets, store cards, credit cards, debit cards, prepaid cards, and loyalty cards via Apple Pay. Apple Wallet is also the main interface with Apple Card, Apple’s newly announced credit card service.
Apple writes on its System Status webpage:
Some users may not be able to pay their Apple Card bill, lock/unlock their physical card, request a new or replacement physical card, or request a new card number.
It’s unclear how widespread this outage is, but Apple’s System Status tool indicates that “some users are affected.”
