With over 90 million iPhone users in the United States alone, Apple phones are constantly in use in businesses across the country. With that in mind, it's no surprise that the company is capitalizing on that by offering their users a way to pay using Apple products, both online and in person.

Anyone with an iPhone, Apple watch, iPad, or Mac computer can have an Apple Pay account. This account allows you to pay for purchases in apps, online, and in a wide range of physical store locations as well. It can be used anywhere that accepts contactless payments, and essentially works by digitizing your physical cards.

For that to work, banks and credit unions have to agree to work with Apple.

From the Big Leagues to Hometown Locals

As one would expect, Apple's initial focus was on national banks and institutions, targeting those with wide customer bases. However, as the company has continued expanding its growth, it has begun bringing more regional institutions into the fold, allowing customers who bank locally the opportunity to use the service. Below are the regional banks and credit unions that were added to Apple Pay in December of 2018:
