Apple Pay is a major milestone in the evolution of mobile payments, partly as it bears what Forbes lists as the world's most valuable brand. Apple Pay is seen by many as an inflection point, and its development over the next three to five years has the potential to shape the payments industry for decades to come. According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, Apple only ventures into areas where it can control the primary technology, which perhaps hints at Apple's plans in the payment industry.

Apple's current business model follows a cooperative approach, with almost all major card networks, issuers and acquirers supporting the launch of Apple Pay. EMV migration in the US plays a pivotal role in Apple Pay's adoption. Merchants are in the process of upgrading their POS terminals to EMV, which in most cases will also comprise NFC hardware (NFC-capable terminals). These terminals only require a simple software upgrade to be activated (NFC-enabled terminals). POS vendors and acquirers are expected to offer bundled deals for merchants to simultaneously upgrade their terminals to EMV and NFC, resulting in an accelerated expansion of NFC acceptance.
However, Apple could face a challenge in terms of allocation of merchant service charges with other payment participants, especially as regulators across the world cap interchange fees. Timetric's primary research has identified different points of view regarding the expansion of Apple Pay beyond the US. Some industry experts argue that low interchange fees outside the US, especially in Europe, will discourage Apple from entering these markets, while others stress that Apple is not expecting substantial profits from Apple Pay; the solution is mainly intended to decrease the commoditization of Apple's products.

Apple Pay has attracted the interest of the payments industry and the public in mobile payments and NFC technology. Although it has not introduced a genuinely new technology, it has been successful in combining existing technology such as Secure Element (SE), tokens and biometric authentication to develop a new payment solution. From a marketing and distribution perspective, Apple Pay benefits greatly from Apple's brand and technology platform.
Card transactions processed through Apple Pay are expected to be less prone to fraudulent activity than mag-stripe and EMV cards, as Apple Pay combines tokenization, chip, dynamic authorization codes, and biometric authentication. Banks in the US have rallied to support Apple Pay, partly because of its security features. However, whether or not Apple Pay can significantly reduce fraud levels in card transactions outside the US remains uncertain, due largely to the limited reach of iOS.
