Additional bank institutions now support Apple Pay
Apple is expanding the coverage of Apple Pay in some of the markets. In the US, Apple Pay has added support for 21 new banks and credit institutions. Additionally, Apple Pay adds new institutions in Japan, Canada and Russia.
The company added 40 new banks in the US in November only, and keeps adding new each month, which makes the mobile payment platform even more popular. Additionally, the US users can now send and receive peer-to-peer payments thanks to Apple Pay Cash – a service integrated with both the Wallet and the Messaging app. Voice commands for Apple Pay Cash are also supported via Siri.
