Google Pay on iPhone?
It’s been quite a while since Manzana payment is available in iPhone. This functionality, also present in other devices such as Manzana Watchmakes paying in stores and withdrawing money (as long as our bank is compatible), much simpler and more efficient thanks to our devices.
As a system of Manzana, is the one found on your devices. But from the looks of it, this could be about to change. This is because the use of Manzana payment depends depends on NFC of the devices. And from NFC of the iPhone Y Manzana Watch can only use the services of Manzana.
The EU considers that Apple takes advantage of its position to prevent other services from making use of NFC
And this is where the problem lies. The EU understands that by preventing other services from making use of the iPhone’s NFC, Apple is taking advantage of its position. In other words, it accuses it of being a monopoly again and of abusing its position to prevent other services from making use of the NFCbeing the intention that Manzana allow other payment methods such as Google payment.
Apple Pay cards in Wallet
