As reliable Mark Gurman stated in his latest Power On newsletter, Some of the upcoming Apple Services are in the development phase. As earlier reported, two financing connected services for Apple Pay: the “Hardware Subscription plan” and the “buy now pay later” for Apple Pay transactions.
With a Hardware subscription plan, you can buy an iPhone, iPad, or Mac for the subscription period from the Apple Store, and this service will be linked to Apple ID, which also pushes other services purchase like Apple One and Apple Care+.
The “Buy now pay later” will allow users to pay with limited installments for Apple Pay purchases. Gurman now reported features that Apple might delay revealing these above financial features until the beginning of the next year.
