Apple is planning to announce support for Apple Pay in the UK during its Monday Worldwide Developers Conference kickoff keynote, accor to a report from The Telegraph. Reportedly, the corporate will flick the switch sometime within the subsequent two months. It isn’t clear precisely which corporations have signed up, however 9to5Mac claims that huge bank Lloyds TSB is a launch partner; MasterCard, meanwhile, says that it is “absolutely ready” for an Apple Pay debut in Great Britain. There is no word of a similarly quick introduction for other nations, however, it’s evident that Apple needs to spread its shopping tech far and wide before rivals show up.
Apple will have high hopes for the United Kingdom, however, Contactless spending trebled last year to £2.3bn.
