At least one financial institution won’t offer Apple Pay until next month. USAA, according to the Daily Dot, will support the mobile payment system for its Visa and MasterCard customers starting on Friday, Nov. 7.
When it was originally announced at the iPhone 6 and iWatch event in early September, Apple said the system would arrive in October. Many had expected support to launch alongside iOS 8.1, which is widely expected to be unveiled this month.
On the Apple Pay site, USAA is on the of the financial institutions “coming soon.” The participating banks listed first on the site include American Express, Bank of America, Capital One, Chase, Citi, and Wells Fargo.
More than likely, those six financial institutions will roll out Apple Pay support sometime before USAA.
Currently, the payment system is only supported by the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. But that list could possibly grow. During a special media event next week on Thursday, Oct. 16, Apple is expected to introduce a new iPad Air with a Touch ID sensor, a big part of Apple Pay.
The company is also expected to discuss more about payment technology at the event.
