Commonwealth Bank CEO Matt Comyn appeared before the parliamentary joint committee on corporations and financial services on 27 July. He told the committee that Apple Pay is now an essential service in the payments system and should therefore be subject to greater regulation, given that access to the iPhone’s near-field communication chip is restricted solely to Apple’s own digital wallet. Tom Leuner from the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission also noted that restrictions on access to the chip could potentially raise competition concerns. Some 9,000 banks worldwide now use Apple Pay, including Australia’s four major banks.
