This type of technology would enable iPhone users the ability to set up a “mobile wallet” that can be used when shopping and you can tap a payment terminal instead of swiping your card. This makes for a more efficient and convenient checkout process. We won't know whether this rumor is true until the September 9th event so be patient and stay tuned for any potential leaks that may occur within the next week!
