So two of my debit cards were automatically renewed this week and they are, by default, contactless. That takes the count of my debit and credit cards that are contactless to 4, leaving only 1 that's standard chip and pin. I think it's safe to say that soon, every debit and credit card issued in the UK is going to be contactless. Which leads me to thinking, how well is Apple pay, peddled through the Apple watch, going to take off in the UK? Because in actual fact it's *easier* to use a debit or credit card, than it is to use your iPhone or Apple Watch, to pay for things. Both the aforementioned require button presses. The debit card solution doesn't. In fact, I don't even need to take the card out of my wallet if it's at the front. I appreciate that in the states they still use the system we used last decade, signing receipts and the like, so Apple pay is a big time saver for them, but not at all for us, so much so that I wonder if it's going to flop completely?
