Apple Pay Landing Page Goes Live on Apple’s Mexico Website, Suggesting Imminent Launch

Apple added an Apple Pay landing page to its regional Mexico website late on Tuesday, indicating the mobile payment system could launch in the country imminently.


Way back in March there were suggestions that Apple Pay could be coming to Mexico, after reports that some iPhone users in the country had been able to add their Banregio cards to the Wallet app, with only the verification process failing.

Cards from banks other than Banregio were not able to be added to the Wallet app on the ‌‌iPhone‌‌, suggesting ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ in Mexico could be limited to Banregio at launch.

That’s still uncertain, since the ‌Apple Pay‌ page on Apple’s Mexican website offers no launch date and doesn’t list any banks that will integrate with the service. All it says is ‌Apple Pay‌ will be compatible with “credit and debit cards of the most important payment networks, issued by various banks,”

Many of us are eagerly anticipating Apple’s new iPhones on Tuesday because they are expected to include a major new feature: 5G, for the fifth-generation cellular network.

Phones with 5G capability have been positioned as far better than our current devices. That’s because carriers like AT&T and Verizon have hyped 5G as a life-changing technology capable of delivering data speeds so fast that you can download a feature-length movie in seconds.

But tamp down your expectations, at least for now. In the near term, the new cellular technology probably won’t be a big leap forward from its predecessor, 4G. Instead, in most cases, 5G will only be incrementally faster, if at all.

Here’s

Apple iPhone event: Live updates

Apple held an event in September, but it didn’t announce iPhones then like it usually does. Instead, it used the event to refresh its Apple Watch and iPad lines, as well as introducing a new fitness subscription service and a discounted bundle of services.

The new Apple Watch Series 6 builds on years of health-focused updates by adding blood oxygen monitoring to the mix. Blood oxygen levels are a good indicator of cardiovascular health and fitness.

For the first time Apple also introduced a lower cost model, the $279 Apple Watch SE, which features fewer features than the latest model. But Apple said it’s still twice as fast as the Apple Watch Series 3, which is slightly cheaper at $199.

Apple introduced a refreshed iPad Air, with a sleek new industrial design and a USB-C port, just like the iPad Pro models the company announced earlier this year. The new
