Apple Pay launched in the UK

Apple has launched its mobile payment service, Apple Pay, in the UK in its first mobile payment move beyond the US. iPhone users are now able to pay with just the tap of a smartphone, or Apple Watch, across the high street. The service can be used at more than 250,000 shops, restaurants and online retailers, from Boots and the Post Office to Starbucks. In the US Apple Pay has become the biggest NFC (near field communication) mobile payment service in the country, accounting for 1% of all digital payment dollars, but mainstream retail adoption has also been slower than expected.
