Apple Pay picks up 44 new banks and credit unions in the U.S.
With only a certain number of large money center banks in the U.S., Apple needs to turn to smaller regional banks and credit unions to build up the roster of financial institutions that support Apple Pay. The mobile payment system can eventually become a nice money tree for Apple, which reportedly takes .15% of the value of each credit card transaction that runs through Apple Pay.

Today, 44 new U.S. banks and credit unions have been added to the list of those stateside institutions that support Apple Pay. For those who might have forgotten, the feature is available on the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Apple iPhone 6s, Apple iPhone 6s Plus and Apple iPhone SE. Used in conjunction with the Apple Watch, Apple Pay will work with the Apple iPhone 5, Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c.

The list of new banks and credit unions that support Apple Pay include:
