"We know customers in the UAE will love the added convenience and security Apple Pay brings, and we can't wait for them to start making easier and more private payments soon," Jennifer Bailey, vice-president of Apple Pay, said in the statement.
To use Apple Pay, consumers can tap their iPhone over payment terminals to buy coffee, train tickets and other services. It can be also used at vending machines that accept contactless payments.
