Apple Pay in the UK: Lloyds Bank support coming soon

Lloyds Bank will join the ranks of major UK financial institutions to offer Apple Pay to their customers.

In an email sent out to customers on Friday (via MacRumors), the firm said support for the NFC-based wireless payments technology will come to Lloyds cardholders “very soon”.

As with other banks enabling Apple Pay, it’ll be open to debit and credit card holders, and purchases will be limited to less than £20.

Lloyds joins several UK banks to have promised to support Apple Pay, but have yet to roll it out to customers. Halifax, Barclays and the Bank of Scotland have all committed, but are yet to confirm the launch date.

Those already on board include HSBC/First Direct, MBNA, Nationwide, NatWest, the Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander and Ulster Bank.

Apple Pay is Cupertino’s effort to own the mobile payments market. Users of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus Apple Watch, iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2 can use it to make payments, authenticating them using the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

It rolled out in the UK last month following a successful US launch in October 2014.
