Apple Pay can be used for iTunes, App Store and Apple Book purchases
You can now use Apple Pay to make purchases from iTunes, the App Store and Apple Books. You can also use it for Apple Music and iCloud storage subscriptions. MacRumors spotted the change in a recently updated support document. The added Apple Pay options are coming to users in the US, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Russia, Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates, but they might not be available in all of those locations just yet.
For eligible purchases, you’ll now have the added security benefits of Apple Pay, as well as the ability to manage Apple Music and iCloud storage subscriptions from the Wallet App. The update comes just ahead of the Apple Card’s launch this summer. As we’ve reported previously, one incentive to use the card will be two percent cash back when you use Apple Pay — and three percent back if it’s for purchases from Apple. This change will make it easier to rack up those cash-back perks.
