Dear Subscriber,

The middle of June is a time when a large amount of people eagerly starts looking past the high temperatures and holidays of summer towards September and the promise of new Apple updates and products. And this June is bound to get payments players salivating. At this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), Tim Cook revealed Apple Pay is finally making its way to the computer. In autumn, US customers will be able to pay for things on their Mac using the company’s payment service, with the phone’s Touch ID acting as the authenticator. So what does it mean for the payments space? In today’s newsletter we take a look.

Elsewhere in the newsletter, in news that will not be at all surprising, contactless spending went mainstream in 2015 with £7.75 billion being spent using contactless cards, compared to £2.32 billion in 2014, according to new research from the UK Cards Association (UKCA).

What’s more, we’ve picked out the top stories across Europe’s fintech and payments industry so you don’t have to. We’re nice like that.

Enjoy!
