Cheap electronics makers are using the Apple Pay system to make their smartphones cheaper, and Apple is making it easier for them to do so.

But Apple is also quietly expanding its reach into the world of home and personal electronics, by adding a new type of payment option to iPhones, according to reports in the US and the UK.

The first payment terminals are being installed in the UK, and the first iPhones will be able to make use of the system by the end of the year, according the UK Daily Mail.

Apple has long been known for its ability to control the prices of its products, but it appears that the company is now looking to take control of the market, too.

While Apple’s move to allow home buyers to pay for their phones using a credit card is not new, the idea of having a payment terminal in your home is.

That’s because it allows consumers to pay in cash, and it’s cheaper than buying goods in stores.

The news comes just a day after a British newspaper reported that Apple is working on a “Pay in Cash” option, allowing customers to make purchases at Apple retail stores using credit cards.

Apple Pay has been available in the Apple Store for a while now, but the new payment option allows customers to pay using a mobile device, rather than their bank account, and is expected to be available in a limited number of stores in the coming weeks.

A number of major retailers, including Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy Mobile, already accept Apple Pay.

“We want to give you a real option to pay with your mobile phone,” said Apple VP Phil Schiller during a keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference in May.

“That means you can pay for everything from movies to groceries to things like clothes.”

Apple has also been testing the feature in China, according Reuters, which noted that Apple Pay has also launched in India and the United Arab Emirates.

Although Apple has not announced any plans for a mass rollout in the United States, its recent moves have also raised questions about its willingness to make changes in order to compete with Google’s Android mobile operating system.

Apple has a long history of pushing out major software updates, and this move could signal that it is serious about keeping up with Android.
