I am glad to see this, though. I actually had gone into a T-mobile store to try to pay my bill early with ApplePay and when the clerk tried to do it and I scanned my phone, he got an alert saying I had to use my physical card. Well I don’t even carry my physical AppleCard and that would have taken the cash back from 3% down to 1% anyway.
EDIT: As others point out below, it does seem possible to AutoPay through ApplePay. I just changed mine. I wonder how this works once we change devices and a new “number” is assigned to our ApplePay cards? Will we have to redo the AutoPay order, or will it update automagically?
