• Apple Could Launch Website Integration for Apple Pay at WWDC

    Apple Pay is rumored to see integration with websites that are visited on iOS-based devices.

    A report surfaced in March 2016 that outlined Apple’s rumored plans to offer Apple Pay support in some websites. Back then, the report indicated that only some websites would offer support, and that the only devices that could use the feature would be iPhones and iPads that have Touch ID for an extra layer of security.

    Now, thanks to a repot from Digital Trends, the rumor is back. Once again, there’s word that the only sites that will function with the mobile payment feature will be from select partner sites, and Touch ID will be necessary for a purchase to be made possible. The new feature could be announced at this year’s WWDC, which kicks off on Monday, June 13.

    However, there is some questions on whether or not users of OS X devices will be able to use Apple Pay, and a card connected to the service, by visiting websites using Safari:

    “Based on our source’s information, it’s unclear whether you will be able to use Apple Pay on the web from a device that does not have a fingerprint sensor, such as a MacBook or a PC. It’s also unknown whether a specific browser will be required to make purchases with Apple Pay online.”
    As it stands, Apple Pay can be used in iOS apps, as well as in physical retail stores with the necessary equipment installed. The addition of third-party website support, even from select partners, would be a big boost for Apple Pay and its expanding scope of functionality.
