AAPL CEO Tim Cook is expected to make a big announcement today about Apple Pay, according to Bloomberg’s Adrian Chen.
The company plans to release a new version of the Apple Pay app in the next couple of weeks.
Chen reports that Apple is likely to include a feature to support iOS 7 and up, though Apple Pay could be supported for other platforms.
Apple has not yet responded to our request for comment.
Apple is also reportedly working on an app for Android that will allow customers to make payments via Apple Pay in a way that looks like a phone app, rather than just a web app.
The move could be seen as a major step in Apple’s push into the mobile payments space.
The new version will reportedly support both Android and iOS, and will be available in a few weeks.
We’ve contacted Apple for more details, and we’ll update this article if we hear back.
Apple Pay is expected in the Apple Watch lineup as well, and has also been announced for a future version of iPhone.
Apple has also reportedly been working on a version of its mobile payments platform called iMessage.
Apple says the new Messages app is compatible with Apple Pay and other NFC payment systems, and that it will also be available for Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry.
