The White House Supports Apple Pay Option for iPhone 6 / 6 Plus
The new Apple Pay system continues to grow in the U.S. More banks and stores support this iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus mobile payment option and the latest news mentions Apple Pay White House support with the federal payment cards, which is too superb for all fans of the iOS products.
It is interesting how fast credit unions and banks jump on board and start working with Apple even though a lot of organizations at first were skeptical about such a system launch. The Cupertino-based giant introduced its new form of payment in the fall of 2014 along with iOS 8.1 update offered back in the end of October.
Some stores tried it and refused accepting this method of mobile payment at first. Later on, as iPhone 6 became highly popular in the U.S. and more customers started to use Apple Pay to checkout in stores, new banks and unions started to add to this system expanding the network of supported organizations with the speed of a hurricane.
Apple Pay federal payment cards support is a new step to further development. The White House officially stated that it supported this system on February 13, 2015. Customers who have Social Security benefits or veterans using a debit card can use it for paying with Apple Pay on iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6.
This deal works with both government cards and Direct Express payment network. It is working through GSA SmartPay.
