Apple Pay Works Globally! Today with a rather interesting topic, if you weren’t already aware Apple release iOS 8.1 to the public and with that meant the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners could begin to use Apple Pay. There’s catch to this and that means currently Apple Pay only technically works in with the United States.
However, I live in France and a little bit curious if I could possibly get it to work outside of the United States as there are NFC terminals all over the place here. I did a little bit of digging, a little bit of hacking & eventually I was actually able to get Apple Pay to work outside of the United States here in France. There’s a little bit of a warning, and this isn’t going to work for everyone.
They are a few preliminary steps that you’ll need to pass in order to get this to work, but it definitely will appeal to certain people out there, myself being one of them and I’m going to show you how you can actually use Apple Pay outside of the United States.
Step to use:
If you use it then you must have a card that works with Apple Pay.
Select the region in which you want to pay.
Add card to Passbook.
Pay your payment with the touch ID.
