The rumored iPhone 6 mobile payment wallet may allow users to pay for medicine and other items at drugstores Walgreens and CVS. Speculations that the two of nation's largest drugstore chains may support Apple's digital wallet comes after chatter that retailer Nordstrom may also accept your iPhone 6's built-in digital wallet for payments for goods at its physical stores.
If the rumors pan out, CVS and Walgreens could give Apple a footprint of over 15,000 locations. Given that both stores already accept NFC payments from the rival Google Wallet service, support for the iPhone 6, if the smartphone does ship with the rumored NFC chip, shouldn't be too difficult to add.
In addition to retailer support, Apple is also working with credit card issuers, with chatter that American Express, MasterCard, and Visa may be on board. Additionally, Apple is also working with banks to get discounts on processing payments.
We'll have to wait until September 9 to see what Apple finally announces.
