Over 250,000 locations in the UK are ready to accept Apple Pay this July, including some big name merchants like Marks & Spencers, Boots, Costa, Subway, New Look and more! London commuters will also be able to pay via Apple Pay. There will also be a loyalty and rewards program soon.
Pretty much all the major UK banks are now supporting the system, including HSBC, NationWide, Santander, RBS, MasterCard, Halifax and more.
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.
