apple-pay-004At the moment Apple Pay is only available in the US, but if recent job listings are anything to go by, Apple has plans on expanding the service to other parts of the world in the future. That being said it looks like the UK could be one of those countries to receive Apple Pay support in 2015, if a report from The Telegraph is to be believed.

According to The Telegraph, they have heard from sources that Apple is currently in talks with the major banks in the UK to launch Apple Pay in the country in the first half of 2015. They also add that these banks have shown a bit of skepticism regarding security of the personal information of its users, but at the same time have reportedly acknowledged the impact Apple Pay has had in the US.

Of course it remains to be seen if the reports are accurate and if Apple Pay will launch in the U in the first half of the year, but for those living in the UK who are interested in the service, we guess this is something to look forward to. Other countries/regions that Apple has had their eye on includes China, the Middle East, India, Africa, and other parts of Europe.

The service has managed to gain a fair amount of traction since its launch and according to an earlier report, accounts for about 1% of all digital payments which is pretty impressive given that it was only activated a few months ago.
