Apple’s mobile payment system, Apple Pay has hit a new milestone, according to a recent report it is now the most popular mobile payment system in the US.
According to eMarketer Apple Pay is now the most popular US mobile payment system, the title was previously held by Starbucks.
Apple’s mobile payment system has 30.3 million users which is 47.3 percent of all mobile payment users, Starbucks has 25.2 million users.
“Apple Pay has benefited from the spread of new point-of-sale (POS) systems that work with the NFC signals Apple Pay runs on,” said eMarketer principal analyst Yory Wurmser. “The same trend should also help Google Pay and Samsung Pay, but they will continue to split the Android market.”
Apple Pay first launched in the US back in 2016, since its US launch Apple has expanded it to many more countries around the world.
