According to a report in the Nikkei Asian Review "Apple will partner with a Sony unit to bring its smartphone-based payment service to Japan – using the partner's contactless FeliCa technology to piggyback on existing infrastructure." Patently Apple reported on this in depth on August 26 in a report titled "Apple Pay could Score a Major Victory Next Year in Japan's Transit System and beyond."


Our August report noted that "Apple Inc. is planning a new iPhone feature for Japan that will enable users to pay for mass-transit rides with their smartphones instead of physical payment cards. A future iPhone will include technology called FeliCa, a mobile tap-to-pay standard in Japan developed by Sony Corp." For more on this, see our previous report here.
