for the latest list of supported devices.
B. Accounts and cards
To use Apple Pay, your device needs to be running iOS 8.1 or later. You can check which version of operating system it's using by going to 'Settings' > 'General' > 'About', then scrolling down and looking for 'Version'.
Under 'About' in the menu you should see a 'Software Update' notification if your device is on an older version.
Go to the 'Settings' icon on your device, select 'Use iCloud' and follow the on-screen instructions.
We also recommend setting up Find My iPhone in case your device is lost or stolen. See our
Apple Pay security page

Go to Settings, select 'Wallet & Apple Pay', tap 'default card' and select your TSB card.
To make sure it's you who's trying to register the device, we'll give you the option to complete the verification by SMS or a phone call.
If you choose SMS, we'll send a verification code to the mobile number registered to your account. All you need to do is enter the code in the Wallet app.
And that's it - you're ready to start using Apple Pay. In most stores you'll be able to spend up to £30 per contactless transaction but there are some that'll let you make higher value payments. And in apps, there's no upper limit.
