WASHINGTON: Apple iPhone 6 rumours mill continues to roll, now new report recons that smartphone will debut with a new mobile payment system.
The next generation iPhone expected to launch in September, while rumours still playing their own mind games.
This time report emerge stating that the device will feature new and advance mobile payment system. Not too long ago, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that Apple was indeed interested in a mobile payments system of its own, but gave no additional details regarding how far the company had come with the system’s development.
The CEO also reckoned at the time that Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint reader, which was introduced with the current iPhone 5S flagship, could be used for mobile payments. On the other hand, Cook offered no concrete information as to when Apple would officially offer such functionality.
“Apple has told some partners its system would involve a so-called secure element in the phones – a piece of hardware where sensitive information such as a phone owner’s financial credentials can be stored. The company also aims to run the system without giving up any control to wireless carriers.”
No further details are currently available in this regards, but we’ll keep you up to date as soon as more information surfaces. In the meantime, make sure to take all leaks, rumors and reports with a grain of salt.
