Apple issued a software update for iPhones on Monday (June 6). The IT titan also introduced a buy-now, pay-later program. Furthermore, the firm showcased a Macbook Air equipped with its newest M2 processor. The announcements were made at the Worldwide Development Conference (WWDC 2022). It is Apple's second big yearly event of the year.
Apple Pay Later, a new feature offered by the company's payments infrastructure, allows consumers to break purchases into subsequent installments. Users will be able to split any Apple Pay purchase into four equal payments over six weeks, with no added interest or fees, using the Buy Now, Pay Later service.
When using Apple Pay, users will be given the option to buy now and pay later. The purchase page will state the amount of each payment and when it is due.
