All Major Canadian Banks Now Support Apple Pay

Like any true Canadian, my first Apple Pay transaction was at Tim Hortons. And it worked super smoothly, as you’d expect.

Apple Pay is probably one of the nicest things the company has done for a while, largely because it’s so Apple-y. It’s something that looks completely effortless, yet clearly requires an enormous effort from both hardware and software, negotiations with major banks, and seamless integration between all of those components. When you think of the greatest Apple products over the years — from the original Macintosh, to the iPod and the iTunes Store, right up to the iPhone, and now Apple Pay — they all exhibit these qualities.
