“Apple on Tuesday updated the list of U.S. Apple Pay card issuers with 58 more financial institutions, putting the company over the 900 mark and within sight of hitting 1,000 later this year,” Roger Fingas reports for AppleInsider.
“The expanded list includes a mix conventional banks and credit unions, as has become standard for Apple,” Fingas reports. “There don’t appear to be any major additions, with most of the new entries being highly localized.”
“The bulk of Apple Pay expansion efforts remain focused on the U.S., even with the service also present in Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom,” Fingas reports. “It will come to Hong Kong, Singapore, and Spain later this year however, as well as mainland China thanks to a deal with China UnionPay.”
