Apple Pay in China may be too popular for its own good.
Shortly after Apple officially launched Apple Pay in China, many iPhone users in the country claimed they were unable to link their bank cards to the service. At first, it seemed the issue stemmed from too many people trying to sign up, but Apple is now claiming that it had planned for a gradual rollout.
In a statement sent to 9to5Mac, Apple says the ability to add cards to Apple Pay was available on a rolling basis throughout launch day. Mashable is reporting that 38 million Chinese bank cards were added to Apple Pay by 5 p.m. on launch day, and 10 million of those cards were linked within the first hour.
