Adventurers and nature-lovers may finally have a reason to indulge in Apple Pay.

Last Friday, Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke at a cybersecurity summit and announced that Apple Pay can be used to enter national parks beginning in September.

The digital wallet will allows travelers to make payments with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Watch-compatible devices (iPhone 5 and later models), iPad Air 2, and iPad Mini 3. The mobile payment also works with Visa’s PayWave, MasterCard’s PayPass, and American Express’s ExpressPay terminals.

With advanced near-field communication technology and working with financial transactions with the U.S. government, many experts believe that Apple Pay may possible be the most security payment method we have today. As also explained by Cook:

Security was part of the reason we developed the technology in the first place. We can imagine a day in the not so distant future when your wallet becomes a remnant of the past…Sacrificing our right to privacy can have dire consequences.”

As a champion of privacy, Cook also said:

Our customers’ trust means everything to us. Privacy and security are built into every one of our products and services from their inception.
