In June, foreign netizens found code related to Hong Kong Octopus in the beta version of iOS 13. It is estimated in the market that Apple will add the support of Octopus card in the near future. Now the service is officially confirmed and it will be provided later this year.
The Octopus company recently issued a press release stating that iPhone and Apple Watch users will be able to make Octopus payments via Apple Pay later this year. As for the official start time and details of the service, it will take a later time to be announced.
Currently many media estimates that Apple Pay’s Octopus support will need to work with iOS 13. Therefore, we may need to wait for the announcement of iOS 13 before we can use Octopus in our iPhone.
