Won't really need bitcoin for that.
Apple has been close to going under quite a few times in its history.  Smiley

Apple should use bitcoin for this instead, it would be better...

that is completely against everything that apple is about. they like to control everything and forcefeed you what you like or don't like.. plus you can make more money that way.

Not quite, they usually pick a thing that already exists but wasn't a success, or at least not yet, rebrand it and add a bitten apple logo to it. Then they let the fanboys do their magic...
Regardless apple is unlikely going to use bitcon for their payment service. They simply wouldn't make enough money off of it for it to be worth their time and investment. Remember that apple usually has very high margins, usually in the 30%+ range.

Apple signs up credit-card companies for NFC payments


Apple has reportedly struck a deal with American Express, MasterCard and Visa to bring NFC mobile payments to the iPhone 6.
The agreements between Apple and the credit-card companies will be officially announced next week alongside the iPhone 6, iPhone 6L, next iPad and, possibly, the iWatch, according to Bloomberg.
According to Bloomberg's source, the inclusion of the NFC chip in the next iPhone and improvements in its Touch ID fingerprint scanner "will allow consumers to securely pay for items in a store with the touch of a finger".
Re/code separately reported the deal with American Express, while The Information claimed a deal had been signed with Visa back in July.
Fourth time lucky?
Of course, this isn't the first time NFC payment rumours have attached themselves to an iPhone launch. Speculation that Apple will adopt the technology has been rife since the 4S, but as yet nothing has materialised.
In 2011, the company introduced its own rival iBeacon technology and, when the iPhone 5 was launched, Phil Schiller, SVP at Apple, categorically ruled out NFC, telling AllThingsD the company's own Passbook system "does the kinds of things customers need today".
However, in the three years since its launch, iBeacon support by third parties has been slow to take off, which may have prompted Apple to adopt NFC alongside its own technology.

What do you think?

I think it seems like a technology platform which bitcoin could run on nicely.  Bitcoin wouldnt have got to where it is now if companies could wipe it out this easy.

The idea of paying with verification via fingerprint is cool but I don't think it will interfere with Bitcoin's goals. They are completely different in application

To keep the profit margin up at that level is hard without the "protection" of the law.

Smart phone will get increasing high competition on price and quality. I do not see Apple company having any other product that can be compete on global with huge profit margin.

I think it is more then fair for apple to be able to protect their original ideas and inventions if that is what allows them to make money. If they invest time and money (they usually invest a lot of both) into building something unique then there is no reason for other people to be able to legally copy what they built.

I hope they succeed Google Wallet.  That was a big failure
Apple is better at marketing bad ideas.

Apple does NOT compete on the price/quality market. They compete on the exhibition/luxury market.
The problem here is that they are hitting the masses with it for quite a while and eventually the branding magic will fade or disappear.

If the rumors are true, we would get yet another way of making payments. There have been some project to implement NFC payments, but a major player like Apple and its infrastructure would be a game changer. Would it kill bitcoin though, or crypto currency as a whole?

No chance. Simply because it's two different worlds, two different set of customers.

Not true... Apple should be happy with bitcoin boom. They can use its popularity. They might even buy the bitcoin name.

That's the issue, they can't.
You must look at Apple and Steve Jobs as Thomas Edison and Marconi... the issue is that Bitcoin doesn't have a Nikola Tesla to exploit.

We will know if the magic is fading soon - iPhone 6 and iWatch are going to hit the markets.
