A few weeks ago, rumors were about the upcoming arrival of Apple Pay, Apple’s mobile payment service, on Macs running macOS. During the opening keynote of the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2016) which was held Monday evening in San Francisco (United States), the Cupertino company confirmed the news.
According to the announcement made by Craig Federighi, VP of Apple, Apple Pay will arrive very soon on Mac. Of course, you are certainly wondering how this can be possible. The transaction can be done through the Safari browser. However, the confirmation of identity will have to be made from the Touch ID sensor of the iPhone, which means that Apple does not yet plan to integrate this fingerprint sensor on its Macs.
In addition, we do not yet have information on the exact date of the launch of this contactless payment service Apple Pay on Apple computers. However, that should not delay any longer given the new updates that Apple has just brought to macOS and also the progressive development of the new browser (still in experimental version) which should replace Safari in the coming times: Safari Technogy Preview .
