Apple Pay should not be long in arriving now France. Indeed, after Switzerland where the service has just been activated this morning, France could benefit from Apple’s mobile payment from Tuesday, July 19. At least, that’s what revealed to Mac4Ever a source close to the file and this also confirms the latest rumors spread on this subject.

Apple Pay France - Apple Pay: a release in France on July 19?From this date, iPhone owners living in France will therefore be able to take advantage of the firm’s contactless payment system. However, as we already reported here a few weeks ago, Apple Pay will initially be available in only a few banking establishments including Banque Populaire, Caisse d’Épargne, Boon, Carrefour Banque, Orange, as well as Ticket Restaurant. As in Switzerland, the service should quickly spread to other establishments.

In addition, other rumors around Apple Pay also reveal that employees of Apple Stores in France would receive training from next week. This should allow them to be sufficiently ready for the launch of the service on July 19, although the interval is a bit short. Anyway, this news can only please the many iPhone users on French soil.
