Apple Pay finally launches in Mexico after months of delays

Apple has officially released its mobile payments tool Apple Pay in Mexico today.

The company had been teasing the release of the service on its website for more than six months, with insiders suggesting that a release was “days away” last autumn, but now the service has officially launched and will allow Mexican consumers to pay for goods using their phone.

Two of the country’s biggest banks, Citibanamex and Banorte, are supporting the service at launch, though other banks are likely to be part of the list and new vendors will add support for the service as Apple Pay grows. Consumers can check whether their bank supports Apple Pay today by heading to the Wallet app on their iPhone and adding their credit or debit card there.

Users in Mexico can also take advantage of Apple Pay on their iPads, Apple Watches, and Macs.
