You can now use Apple Pay to make purchases from iTunes, the App Store and Apple Books. MacRumors spotted the change in a recently updated support document. The added Apple Pay options are coming to users in the US, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Russia, Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates, but they might not be available in all of those locations just yet.

For eligible purchases, you'll now have the added security benefits of Apple Pay. The update comes just ahead of the Apple Card's launch this summer. As we've reported previously, one incentive to use the card will be two percent cash back when you use Apple Pay -- and three percent back if it's for purchases from Apple. This change will make it easier to rack up those cash-back perks.

Update 5/14/19 6:20PM ET: The story has been corrected to reflect that the experience of managing Apple Music and iCloud storage subscriptions has not changed. Users cannot manage subscriptions through the Wallet app.
