Besides opening its first retail store in Singapore next year, Apple is also bringing its mobile payment service, Apple Pay to the country.
According to MacRumors, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed this plan during the company's earnings call earlier today. Apple will be working with American Express to bring Apple Pay to customers in "key global markets", which include Canada and Australia later this year, and Spain, Singapore and Hong Kong in 2016.
Apple Pay was launched in the United States last year alongside the iPhone 6/6 Plus and Apple Watch. It offers an easy, secure and private way of making payment with Touch ID.
At launch, It supported credit and debit cards from the three major payment networks - American Express, MasterCard and Visa. Some of the retailers in the US which support Apple Pay include SUBWAY, Toys 'R' Us, McDonalds and Nike.
Apple Pay is currently supported on the iPhone 6/6s/6 Plus/6s Plus, Apple Watch, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4 and Mini 3.
