A few hints from Apple’s website unearthed by a Reddit user seem to suggest Apple Pay may be launching in Germany soon. In the updated Apple Pay coverage map released on October 10, Germany was shown in blue alongside the U.K., France, and Switzerland, the only European countries that already have Apple Pay up and running. The map has since been updated, but it sparked a search on Apple’s German website that turned up a link to an Apple Pay landing page. The page is currently inactive, leading responders on the Reddit thread to speculate that a problem with Apple’s CMS is allowing links that aren’t live yet to show up in the website’s search.
Apple has promised to bring its mobile payment system to Spain by the end of the year, but hit snags in Germany while negotiating with the country’s major banks. Apple Pay landed in Russia earlier this month and is expected to go live in Japan tomorrow. [via Apple Insider]
