Apple Pay is picking up a huge wave of newly added banks and credit unions across the United States to support the mobile payment service. Following a couple dozen more banks lighting up earlier this month, Apple has added over 70 additional participating banks to its list of active partners including HSBC in the US. These are the latest banks that now work with Apple Pay:

That massive wave of new partners comes just as signs that Apple Pay in Canada is getting ready to launch. Just a week ago TD Canada shared on its website that Apple Pay is coming soon. That detail comes after 9to5Mac and others have reported that Apple is targeting Apple Pay in Canada for this year. China has also been a clear target for Apple Pay launching. Apple Pay is currently limited to the US and UK, which joined this summer.
Adding new partners in groups ranging from a dozen to nearly a hundred certainly helps Apple’s claim that its mobile payment service is continuing to see double-digit growth each month.
Apple Pay supports contactless payments in stores using iPhone 6 and later as well as Apple Watch which works with iPhone 5 or later. Apple Pay also supports purchases in apps on iPhone 6 or later as well as iPads with Touch ID. Starting with the recent iOS 9 software update, Apple Pay added support for Discover cards, retail cards, and loyalty cards. Passbook, where Apple Pay lives on iOS, gained a new app icon and name, Wallet, to reflect the change.
