Barclays won’t offer Apple Pay support until 2016
Barclays bank customers waiting to jump in on the Apple Pay mobile payments bandwagon will have to wait until 2016.
This news comes via positive customer Mike Jobson (via AppleInsider), who emailed Barclays UK’s retail banking Chief executive officer Ashok Vaswani with the hope of receiving some solutions.
After pestering the large wig for any response, Jobson received an answer revealing that Barclays will indeed be supporting Apple Pay – however the launch remains several weeks away.
Vaswani authored: “We have subscribed to Apple Pay and can launch it very at the start of 2012. We truly value your custom and hope that you will always bank around, particularly because we are starting this shortly.”
Barclays have been the greatest profile hold on Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds, Countrywide, NatWest and RBS registered as soon as Apple Pay folded in the United kingdom in This summer.
The Apple website lists TSB under its “not far offInch section, but past the odd rumour there is no reference to Barclays jumping aboard.
