  • Apple Pay Expected Soon at Lloyd's Bank in the U.K.

    In the short time that Apple's mobile payments platform has been around, tens of thousands of retail outlets, banks, and financial institutions in the U.S. and abroad have clamored at the chance to embrace Apple's long-awaited offering.

    In June, Apple confirmed the mid-July U.K. launch of Apple Pay, saying at the time that some 250,000 locations will accept Apple Pay at launch. This goes along with support from the UKs foremost banks and credit card providers.

    Now comes word that a prominent institution in the U.K. is also gearing up to embrace Apple Pay -- and soon (although "soon" wasn't exactly specified in the reports circulating ahead of the weekend).

    According to our friends at Mac Rumors, there's no longer any doubt about the arrival of Apple Pay at Lloyd's Bank.

    "Lloyds Bank has sent an email to customers to notify them that it will begin supporting Apple Pay 'very soon' for contactless payments with debit and credit cards and in-app purchases," today's report reads. "Most transactions will initially be limited to 20 at retailers in the United Kingdom, but some retailers may allow larger purchases."
