Apple has expanded mobile phone billing to Denmark, Hong Kong, and Sweden, according to an updated support document on its website.


The feature is now supported by the carrier Three in each of the countries, in addition to SmarTone in Hong Kong and Telenor in Sweden.

The payment method enables customers to pay for iTunes Store content, App Store apps, iBooks, and Apple Music subscriptions without needing a debit or credit card, or even a bank account. Instead, purchases are added to a customer's mobile phone bill and paid off at the end of the month.

Mobile phone billing is already available to customers of select carriers in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, Norway, Russia, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

Apple's support document explains how to set up mobile phone billing in the iTunes Store on both iPhone and iPad and Mac and PC.

Hopefully this comes to the UK, great for buying apps that can't be claimed as a business expensive and hiding them on your mobile bill instead haha.

I guess Canada will be the last country to support this at this point, though I'm surprised the US doesn't have this either (you'd think they'd be first, but... nope).

Tbh I don't really see the use of this, but nonetheless I'm gonna activate this.
