Upcoming iPhones will get chip to let Japanese citizens pay for mass-transit rides
In addition, FeliCa cards are able to process transactions in 0.1 seconds and handle e-money, which is a Japanese form of electric currency accepted at vending machines, convenience stores, and cafes in Japan. Apple is said to be in discussions with at least one major financial institution to support e-money transactions.
Apple allegedly plans to debut this feature on September's new iPhones, although it could hold them back if negotiations with Japan's partnering payment networks are delayed. In addition, the upcoming iOS 10 will see the Maps application receive mass-transit navigation support for Japan.
