Hi there,

Money transfers via Apple Pay were announced by Apple on June 5, 2017 at the WWDC2017 conference.

If this service becomes available in Switzerland, it will negate one of the advantages of TWINT over Apple Pay. TWINT enables direct transfers between TWINT users. Direct transfers for Apple Pay are not yet possible in Switzerland.

Best regards from Moneyguru
