any idea when ApplePay will be officially available in Singapore without changing phone region to US?
Supposedly to be this year but not sure when. However, the cards and banks will be limited to a few and the local banks isn't in the list so far.

" the motive behind releasing the iPhone 5se is to cater to existing iPhone 5 or earlier users who dislike the bigger screen sizes of the iPhone 6/6 Plus family. Hence, Apple hopes to entice these users to upgrade by retaining the same screen size while updating its specs to support future software upgrades."

Posted in article in HWZ, Wah Liao so much cock and bull horse ****, if really want to retain form factor and size but up the specs how come camera which is one of the major upgrade of 6s never ported over to 5se but instead ported NFC?! Simple! Cost as these phones are meant for Low cost yet still Apple branding for emerging Markets! And why bother so much? Cos Apple is try to capture the Apple Pay market versus Samsung Pay which bringing it to all high mid and Low tiers of Samsung phones.

Come on at least Samsung is honest about its Motivies which is much more I can say about Apple's horse ****!!

I know it's not HWZ fault but as an am editor could you at least analysis the story before posting unless it's a paid advert from Apple.

UOB previously expressed interest in tapping into such technologies.
Let's hope all is well!

Samsung Pay will come to Singapore later this year, DBS, OCBC Bank and Standard Chartered Bank will be among the banks here offering the payment solution. Samsung is also partnering with American Express, MasterCard and Visa, to bring Samsung Pay to Singapore consumers in 2016.

So far Apple officially announce with Apple Pay in Singapore using American express only, our cashless system rollout is really slow.

Apple Pay or not doesn't bother me, a phone's a phone, I use it for surfing, WA, FB, and chatting/calls.

All these nifty little features, I hardly use anyway.

Nope no news yet. Amex will be bringing in Apple Pay to SG first though.

I wonder what's taking Apple so long considering how fast Samsung pay is progressing.

But knowing Apple, they are more committed to their services... So I remain hopeful.
