Apple Pay Brings Contactless iPhone Payments to U.K.

Updated on

Apple Inc. is making the U.K. the first market outside the U.S. for its digital-wallet system as the company fights for a place in the electronic-payments industry.

The Apple Pay service will be available at 250,000 retail locations in Britain starting Tuesday, the company said in an e-mailed statement. The setup lets consumers use devices such as the iPhone 6, iPads and Apple Watches to make payments similar to transactions with contactless debit and credit cards.
