Apple Pay user number 2016-2020

How many people use Apple Pay? Global iPhone users that activated Apple Pay grew by more than 65 million people in 2020. This according to an estimate that assume active iPhones grew by nine percent during 2020 and an increased use of contactless payments during the COVID-19 pandemic. No precise figures for Apple Pay are available: Apple does not communicate user figures, and banks that provide the Apple Pay services are contractually forbidden to share this information. Hence why country specific figures on the payment service do not exist, unless they are based from survey estimates.
