Apple Inc (NASDAQ APPL) is set to release the much awaited iPhone 6 in the coming months. Reportedly, Apple Inc (NASDAQ AAPL) may not have shown off all of its software potential at this year’s WWDC. The iPhone 6 is apparently going to be replete with iWallet, a payment app that might change the way Apple does business forever.
The company’s developer conference is usually a time to show the heart of its software efforts, but sometimes a little something is saved for later in the year. According to some reports, Apple Inc (NASDAQ AAPL) is looking to launch a competitor to payments processing applications from companies like Google Inc (NASDAQ GOOG) and eBay Inc (NASDAQ EBAY) as early as this Fall.
As we found out when Apple released its most recent earnings report, the iPhone 6 is set to arrive before September 27, meaning it could be the first device with Apple payment capabilities.
