When Apple first launched the Apple Pay service in the UK it was not supported by all banks, with support for Natwest, Nationwide, RBS, Santander, Ulster Bank, MBNA and American Express.

Today that list of compatible banks is expanding with the launch of support for both HSBC and First Direct, allowing those who have accounts with those banks to access the service.

Apple also mentioned that they will be adding more banks to the Apple Pay service in the UK over the next few weeks, bringing more brits to the mobile payment system.

Two of these are expected to be Lloyds and Barclays.

As of yet we do not have much official news outside of what we have already mentioned, but when we do hear something new we will let you know.
