Apple Pay may be coming to transit systems soon
I cannot wait for the day we can pay for everything with our phones. This will be so convenient. We just need to make sure we always have enough battery power available. I see, we are moving in the right direction. Apple Pay for transit systems! And Apple Pay for Germany, please!
