What you need to know

  • Apple Pay will soon be a payment option on desktop web browsers apart from Safari, including Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome.
  • Starting with iOS 18, it will be possible to scan a code on a website and then make a payment through Apple Pay by using your iPhone.
  • Apple says that it’s easy for developers to add support for Apple Pay to a website.

At WWDC, Apple announced several major additions to iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. The tech giant also unveiled Apple Intelligence, its AI feature that’s somewhat similar to Windows Recall. But one upgrade to the Apple ecosystem has gone largely unnoticed, and it could have a big effect for some Windows users. Starting with iOS 18, it will be possible to use Apple Pay to make payments on the web, even when using a browser other than Safari.

The change means that Windows users on Edge, Chrome, or any other browser should be able to make payments using Apple Pay. Our colleagues at iMore covered the news and shared how the functionality will work.
