Earlier this month, RBC and CIBC were the first Canadian banks to launch Apple Pay support for Visa, MasterCard and Interac. The mobile wallet first launched in Canada last fall limited to American Express cardholders.
Apple Pay works on an iPhone 6 or newer or Apple Watch (paired with an iPhone) at retailers, while an iPad Air 2 or newer, iPad mini 3 or newer and iPad Pro can make in-app purchases with the mobile wallet.
