Apple has started with the UK and supports over 250,000 retail stores across the nation, including Waitrose, Boots, and Marks & Spencern as well as Transport for London via its Tube, bus, and rail networks. Apple Pay also features in-app purchases, allowing users to buy pretty much anything on the web via online stores.
