Apple is reportedly planning to add a rewards program to Apple Pay

New, 20 comments

As Google is reportedly revamping Google Wallet, Apple, too, is apparently planning to update its own wireless payment system. According to The New York Times, the company is set to announce details about enhancements to Apple Pay at next month's WWDC conference, including a new rewards program that could benefit people who regularly use the mobile wallet.

The publication cites two sources reportedly briefed with Apple's plans, but doesn't offer any further details about what the rewards will entail, or how users will be able to get them. Nevertheless, a reward structure could entice people to start using Apple Pay over its competitors, cash, or credit cards, at a time when there still aren't that many solid reasons to do so.
