My theory: Apple builds a BT LE/NFC fob that's given away for free to all retailers that want to be an "iTunes Pay" partner, ala the Square Reader. "Create a free iTunes Retailer account, connect it to your merchant account, and start accepting payments from customers using the new iPhone Pro with Touch ID. No swipes, no hassle, no credit card processing fees. Like iTunes, we batch-process all credit card transactions, so that you're left fee-free!" Plausible?
