Apple Pay is now available across more bank partners around the world, as we came to earlier about HSBC France and BNP Paribas also joining this list. Apple has included the new banks in its detailed list of banks that already support the service. Also, you can search for the US banks under the new and organised sub categories from the same list and check if your bank supports Apple Pay.
As reported by 9to5Mac, the new set of banks included for the US and other regions of the world are: Alliance Bank (MO), Bank of Deerfield, Community Resource Bank, First National Bank of Creston, KH Network Credit Union, La Salle State Bank, North Salem State Bank, Northwest Bank (IA), Pearl Hawaii Federal Credit Union, Rushville State Bank, The Citizens National Bank of Somerset, Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union, Tyndall Federal Credit Union, Wheelhouse Credit Union, Windsor Federal Savings & Loan.
Other new entries added to the most recently updated list include Qpay in Australia; HSBC in France; Surgutneftegasbank in Russia; Banco Mediolanum in Spain; Concord bank and UkrSibbank in Ukraine; and N26 in the UK.
There have also been new ways added to use Apple Pay recently. The LA Metro rail and bus network are supporting Apple Pay through the TAP system, and Target is finally rolling out support in stores alongside Taco Bell and other US merchants.
Recently, we also saw Apple extending across retail stores in the US including Target, Dunkin Donuts, Speedway and others with an aim to make it more convenient for buyers and sellers across the US.
