The news was announced during an earnings call.

Apple have announced that their mobile payments app, Apple Pay, will be launching in four more countries before the end of this year. The financial application is currently available in 16 countries but the American tech giant is hoping to round that up to 20 by the end of December. In an earnings call on Tuesday, Apple's Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Luca Maestri, revealed that the company will focus on releasing Apple Pay in parts of Scandinavia as well as the United Arab Emirates.

"Apple Pay is by far the number one NFC payment service on mobile devices, with nearly 90 percent of all transactions globally," Maestri said. "We launched Apple Pay in Italy in May, and the UAE, Denmark, Finland, and Sweden are scheduled to go live before the end of this calendar year."

No other information about the releases was revealed, however. Apple did not mention any specific dates or who they will be partnering with in any of the countries.
