Apple's digital takeover in the region continues to grow with confirmation of an upcoming launch. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the details...

Apple fans take note! The Cupertino-based company has announced that Apple Pay will be launched in the UAE later this year, alongside Denmark, Finland and Sweden. While details have not been disclosed about the roll-out of the digital payment service, Apple's Chief Financial Officer shared that the move reflects the global trend, saying, "Apple Pay is by far the number one NFC payment service on mobile devices with nearly 90 per cent of all transactions globally. Momentum is strongest in international markets where the infrastructure for mobile payments has developed faster than in the US. In fact, three out of four Apple Pay transactions happen outside the US."
