In a bid to promote automated payments through Apple ID, Apple has announced a new offer which brings a 20 percent bonus when users add funds to their ID.

Banks are required to obtain user approval through “Additional Factors of Authentication (AFA)” to complete a transaction. Hence, users will have to manually pay subscriptions instead of using automatic payment via the App Store. Since the Apple ID balance will not be affected by RBI’s new directive at present, Apple has asked developers to promote payments through Apple ID, which allows users to add funds through credit/debit cards, UPI, RuPay, and net banking.
