Barclays to support Apple PayBarclays has today confirmed that they will support Apple Pay imminently, following the launch of Apple Pay in the UK at over 250,000 locations.

It seems as though all the major banks have suddenly realised today that Apple Pay is actually taking off and are now rushing to create a platform to support the new technology whereas more “modern” banks such as Santander and Natwest seem to have spent the previous 8 months developing the technology and where ready for Apple Pay upon launch.

Apple has also now updated its list of participating banks by moving HSBC and First Direct to the Coming Soon list along with TSB, RBS, Halifax and others.
