Apple Pay Express Transit could expand to support new card types, iOS 12.3 code suggests

Code found within iOS 12.3, however, suggests, that Apple Pay users will soon be able to use EMV cards with Apple Pay Express Transit, which consist of Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards. This would mean that you could set a default transport card from your existing Apple Pay cards and be able to use that card with Apple Pay Express Transit. It would also be able to distinguish what type of terminal you tap your phone at – and if it’s a non-transit terminal, you’ll be prompted to authenticate as you would at a normal Apple Pay purchase.

Let’s hope this gets rolled out in Singapore.
This would also mean that users who commute using their iOS devices* will not have to be afraid if their devices run out of battery!

* iPhone XS, XS(Max),XR
oh joy.
