Apple has launched its mobile payment system Apple Pay in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong launch follows the recent introduction of the Apple Pay platform in France. In Hong Kong, the Apple Pay service is available on iPhone, Apple Watch or iPad devices. Apple Pay is supported with Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards issued by Bank of China, DBS Bank, HSBC, Standard Chartered, and Hang Seng Bank. Cards issued directly by American Express are also supported. Apple Pay support will soon be extended to Hong Kong's Bank of East Asia and Tap & Go cards.
