Apple is making mobile payments easier by including a near-field communications chip.
The new chip, plus the touch ID Fingerprint Recognition Reader, will allow iPhone users to pay for items in a store with the touch of a finger.
The announcement about the new technology is expected next week, when Apple debuts its latest iPhone.
Apple, as always, hasn't commented.
A recent survey of O-Surv, found 87% of adult travelers who were questioned believe the "Bring Your Own Device Policy" used by many airlines, saves the airlines money.
So 94% of those surveyed say they deserve to benefit from the savings too.
The travelers said they'd like either free entertainment, cheaper airline fare or a break on baggage fees.
Southwest Airlines is the largest U.S. carrier with a BOYD policy, offering free access to 20 channels of live television.
But the airline charges $8 for Wi-Fi access and $5 for movies.
