Apple Partners with Federal Government

Autumn of 2015 will mark an expansion of Apple services into support structures used by the federal government. Apple Pay, the digital payment system designed to revolutionize ecommerce, will support payments at national parks starting in September. This marks a huge partnership with agencies in the public sector. Upon the government's recent advocacy of cyber security interests, the implementation of Apple Pay conveys the system's security, which is necessary for sensitive financial transactions.

Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke on the imperative nature of privacy regarding financial transactions and otherwise.

"History has shown us that sacrificing our right to privacy can have dire consequences, we still live in a world where all people are not treated equally, [where] too many people do not feel free to practice their religion or express their opinion or love who they choose, a world in which that information can make the difference between life and death." Cook said at an announcement of the partnership

Government initiatives aimed at transitioning payment services for pensions to different digital tools. The federal government has also expressed interest in digitizing passports and other forms of identification. The preclusion of adding Apple Pay to services such as the national parks bodes well for the software giant on the heels of what appears to be massive technological progress and reform within the public sector.

The expansion of Apple services highlights the growing adoption of and dependency on iOS.
