Looking for info on how to add the SUICA to your iphone? I’ve got you covered!
Due to the chip shortage and discontinuation of the Suica card, you can get the welcome suica card or even bettr and easier, add the suica card to your apple wallet on your Iphone. This is how you can add the suica Iphone apple wallet.
If you’re an iPhone user, instead of getting a physical IC card such as Suica and Pasmo (whose sales have been suspended indefinitely due to global semiconductor shortage), you can directly add Suica, Pasmo, and Icoca cards in your Wallet without going through the App Store. These cards can be conveniently loaded with Apple Pay. Just follow these steps.

Scroll all the way down to Japan section and choose your preferred card.
Note: You can only reload the cards with a Amex or Mastercard. I had no luck with a citi master card or chase master card in the states. I have heard that Amex works just fine. I don’t have an Amex so no luck on my part. If you want to know how to get a suica card in Japan check out my other article on how to get the suica card or pasmo card here.
