2018 started not too long ago, but Apple has been on a semi-regular update process to bring in new banks and credit unions in the United States to support Apple Pay.

Apple has officially brought in more than a dozen new banks and credit unions in the United States that support the company’s mobile payment option. As is par for the course at this point in Apple Pay’s lifespan, adding new banking establishments is filling in the gaps throughout the country, as the major names in that space have already established their support for the option.

In any event, here are the new additions, as first noted by 9to5Mac:

  • Advancial Federal Credit Union
  • Anahuac National Bank
  • ASI Federal Credit Union
  • Auburn State Bank
  • BankSouth
  • Burbank City Federal Credit Union
  • CentralAlliance Credit Union
  • Columbine Federal Credit Union
  • Connections Bank
  • DCH Credit Union
  • Hastings Federal Credit Union
  • Iowa-Nebraska State Bank
  • Lea County State Bank
  • LegacyTexas
  • McCook National Bank
  • Minnesota Valley Federal Credit Union
  • Peoples Bank (Oklahoma added)
  • St. Francis X. Federal Credit Union
  • TS Bank
  • West Suburban Bank
  • Winchester Savings Bank

Apple added another 20 different banks and credit unions to the list of Apple Pay supporters just before the end of February this year. And while the list is extensive at this point, one can only imagine that there are still plenty of smaller banks and credit unions out there that still need to offer support for the mobile payment option.

Our Take

It’s good to see that so many banks are offering support for mobile payments in general. Using the chip in a card can be frustrating, as it takes awhile to work, but just tapping your phone to a payment terminal is super quick. Even if it means you still might have to input your PIN to authorize the purchase.

How often do you use mobile payments?
