Customers in Italy, Singapore and Austria who lack a credit or debit card can now take advantage of carrier billing on iTunes to have app and media purchases made on Apple’s content stores (including Apple Music subscriptions) billed directly to a monthly mobile phone bill from their carrier.
As per Apple, carrier billing’s been enabled for select carriers—in Austria for Drei customers, Italy for Three customers and Singapore for M1 Limited users.
