At Apple s WWDC yesterday, the company announced that it was extending Apple Pay to the mobile web.
This was rumored earlier this year and only quickly mentioned by Apple Senior VP Craig Federighi during his keynote remarks.
According to a a recent consumer survey by PYMTS.com, 23 percent of iPhone owners had used Apple Pay, up from 17 percent last year.
The discrepancy probably results from different survey samples: iPhone users vs. mobile users generally.
Most mobile payment technologies, and certainly Android Pay and Apple Pay, offer better security than conventional credit card payments at the point of sale.
These survey data are part of a larger report on retail shopping and are based on a February 2016 online survey of of 1,433 US adults.
