During a cybersecurity summit held at the Stanford University recently, Apple chief executive officer Tim Cook announced that Apple Pay will become available for specific transactions with the federal government. Although nothing is certain yet, Cook strongly hinted that Apple's mobile payment system could be used to pay the federal government starting September later this year.
Cook specifically mentioned that Apple Pay will likely be used initially for paying admission for national parks. If this goes well, we may be seeing a lot of people pay for Smithsonian souvenirs or even VISA application fees using Apple's mobile payment system soon after.
