You can find the full list of all issuing partners including this week’s additions here. Apple Pay on iPhones and Apple Watch lets you pay securely in stores that accept contactless payments using the iPhone 6 or later, or any Apple Watch paired with iPhone 5 or later. iPhones and iPads can also make payments within supported apps using Apple Pay and Touch ID on iPhone 6 or later, iPad mini 3 and 4, iPad Air 2, and iPad Pro.

In addition to more banks, retailer JCPenney recently started piloting store-issued card support for Apple Pay, following Kohl’s full support just before them. Apple Pay has also expanded beyond the US and UK with a deal through American Express in Canada and Australia. China is also on the radar in a big way for Apple Pay.

More retailers are also starting to accept Apple Pay with Dominos, Cinnabon, Starbucks, Chilis, and KFC all testing or planning future rollouts. Apple maintains a list of partners that accept Apple Pay here, although many more locations also accept contactless payments including Apple Pay.

Small businesses can also easily accept Apple Pay and other contactless payment methods with options like Square’s new reader which is rolling out or PayAnywhere’s Apple Pay-ready reader that’s sold in Apple Stores.

Apple Pay is also expected to add peer-to-peer payments between users, possibly using iMessage, sometime in 2016 according to recent reports.
