As ‘iPhone in Canada’ reported earlier, lines of code have surfaced in a recent iOS update that may indicate an upcoming ApplePay update for Canada. These lines of code contain references to “NetworkInterac”, which is hinting at a deal between Interac (includes RBC, CIBC, Scotiabank, TD, Bank of Montreal, Canada Trust, Laurentian Bank, National Bank and Credit Union Central of Canada) and Apple.

If this partnership actually goes live in a future update, we can expect that Visa & Mastercard would also ba available alongside the existing American Express cards that are already available for use with ApplePay.
We will let you know more as things progress.
