Apple has announced that its payment service, Apple Pay, is launching in the UK this July.
Leaving aside Apple’s latest shiny hardware, in the shape of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6+ and the forthcoming Apple Watch, for those of us interested in personal finance, the most important announcement at yesterday’s event was the launch of Apple’s mobile payment system, Apple Pay.

When we think about innovation in financial services, we’ll often ask ourselves questions such as “if Google was a bank, what would it do?” or “If Apple designed bank branches, what would they look like?”. Well, we could already have the answer to that second question, thanks to Citibank’s prototype branches.
