Pretty much all the major UK banks are now supporting the system, including HSBC, NationWide, Santander, RBS, MasterCard, Halifax and more.

Discover will be joining Apple Pay this fall which means Apple Pay will work with all major credit networks in the US. There will also be over 1 million Apple Pay locations is the US by next month says Apple.

Passbook has now been renamed to Wallet, and rightfully so, Wallet now acts as your wallet 🙂 All your reward/loyalty cards will be stored within Wallet, as well as boarding passes, tickets and more.
