ICOCA Getting Ready for Apple Pay #2

Notice: Mobile ICOCA is launching March 2023

JR West announced additional stations that will gain ICOCA IC transit card support in the summer of 2018 completing the JR West IC transit network.

Japanese users are speculating on Twitter if this means Apple Pay ICOCA is coming at the same time. If JR West can get a Mobile cloud service in place by then, it is definitely possible.
