In-app payments via Apple Pay have been available with the ExxonMobil Speedpass+ app since last year, but this week the petroleum giant boosted the app to enable users to pay at the pump at 9,600 U.S. Exxon and Mobil stations via the Apple Watch.

Users that have already downloaded the Speedpass+ app may select a pump number first and complete payment using the Apple Watch—even if the terminal lacks Near Field Communication technology—based on an update launched April 27 in the App Store.

With the Speedpass+ update, iPhone users also may log in to the app with Touch ID.
