Bank Of Ireland signals Apple Pay delay
Bank Of Ireland may put the introduction of Apple Pay off until 2020. The company, which is currently replacing its IT systems, had been due to launch Apple Pay and Google Pay alongside its newly-launched app. But while the new app is scheduled for release between October and December of this year, a spokesman told the Irish Independent that it will not now coincide with the introduction of Apple Pay and Google Pay by the bank.
"We do plan to integrate phone payments but we are not in a position to confirm timings at this point," the spokesman said.
"This first version of the app is the foundation from which we will deliver enhanced customer experiences through regular updates."
