iPhones in the EU could get a major Apple Pay upgrade as soon as next month — Apple to offer rival wallets NFC access to dodge massive fine

A new report says that Apple has offered to open up Apple Pay to its rivals in the EU as part of revised terms devised to appease the oncoming tide of Brussels legislation. 

According to Reuters, Apple’s proposal “to open its tap-and-go mobile payments system to rivals is set to be approved by EU antitrust regulators as soon as next month.” It follows a four-year EU investigation into Apple’s tap-to-pay technology on iPhone, powered by NFC. As it stands, iPhone users can currently only use the feature through Apple Pay, which is exclusive to all of Apple’s best iPhones, iPads, Macs, and Apple Watch.
