Apple has confirmed that “Tap to Pay on iPhone”, a new feature that will allow businesses to accept Apple Pay and contactless payments using only an iPhone will be available in the United States at the end of the month.

Apple announced its new “Tap to Pay on iPhone” feature in February. This feature will theoretically turn the iPhone into a payment terminal, with businesses able to accept Apple Pay, contactless credit and debit cards, and other digital wallets with a simple click on their iPhone.

“Tap to Pay on iPhone” will be available for payment platforms and app developers to integrate into their iOS apps, launching first with support from Stripe followed by Adyen before the end of the year.
