Orange CEO wants iPhones to work with Orange Cash

Thursday 18 February 2016 | 16:03 CET | News
Orange CEO Stephane Richard plans to contact Apple CEO Tim Cook again about the fact that iPhones do not support the Orange Cash m-payment system, reports Les Echos. "No, he didn't answer me. The request may have been ignored or could be a disguised refusal, which create a competition problem," Richard said on Radio Classique the day after he announced Orange's 2015 results. The CEO added that he was not looking for a confrontation but was surprised by the time it is taking to get an answer.
