Apple Pay to Be Launched in the UK in 2015?
According to the latest report from The Telegraph, the guys from Cupertino are currently planning to launch Apple Pay in the United Kingdom in the first half of 2015. The reporters claim that Apple is in talks with major banks of the country, which are a bit worried about security and privacy settings of the new payments service, but in general are pleased with the success of Apple Pay in the USA. Moreover, as noted by reliable sources, banks look forward to launching the system in the UK.
Britain's top banks are in talks with Apple to introduce its iPhone “wave and pay” service, Apple Pay, to the high street in the first half of 2015.
Negotiations between the Silicon Valley giant and at least one of the biggest banks have proved tricky, however, because of wrangling over the terms, including what data Apple will be able to access, according to sources.
The main reason for the local banks to worry is the fact that in case they agree to launch Apple Pay in the UK, the guys from Cupertino will get access to sensitive information about the customers. The banks should be sure that Apple is capable of providing the required level of security.
