While Apple Pay works with nearly all of the major banks across the United States, there are still plenty of regional banks and credit unions with customers waiting for Apple Pay to work with their institution. The latest expansion includes nearly 40 more banks and credit unions in the US:

Back in the United States, Apple Pay Cash is available to test with iOS 11.2 developer and public beta and watchOS 4.2 developer beta for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. This feature lets you send cash over iMessage and shop with a virtual debit card and may be released as soon as December 4th.

Back in October, Apple Pay chief Jennifer Bailey publicly spoke about the mobile payment service where she shared several numbers:

  • Apple Pay is now three years old
  • The mobile payment service is available in 20 markets around the world
  • This accounts for 70% of the world’s card payment volume
  • Apple Pay works with 4,000 card issuers
  • 50% of US retailers accept Apple Pay
  • Contactless tickets (i.e. Wallet passes) coming to all Ticketmaster locations
  • Apple Pay makes up 90% of all mobile transaction needs

We also saw Apple Pay launch in four new markets last month: Sweden, Finland, Denmark and United Arab Emirates. Apple Pay still has more US banks to adopt support, the other 50% of US retailers to bring on board, and of course more markets around the world.
