If I look at it in landscape on my iPhone X, I would expect it to go into some kind of two-column layout to make better use of the space. It doesn’t, and just formats everything the same as portrait except blown up with very little height (obviously).
So it seems it’s not just there website that’s had an overhaul. They’ve apparently reduced the effort during onboarding, so definitely having an eye on competing with fintechs. And they state they’ve improved accessibility - which must be applauded.
It’s just the irony of it. I mean… TSB…? While I’ve not had an account with them for years their products aren’t exactly compelling. I’m unsure how long they’ll be sticking around. And we won’t mention IT migration projects.
Maybe these updates will make them more attractive for a buyout/merger/rebrand in the future.
A few banks do publish their Apple Pay limits.
Starling does, and so do Lloyds banking group. I know with Starling you can remove the limit by immediately re-trying a failed transaction with Chip & PIN, which raises it for next time. I wouldn’t be surprised if other banks work in a similar way, but the details are just not documented.
Sometimes the retailer will also have an NFC CDCVM limit, which Apple Pay won’t work beyond. That’s normally not an issue, though, as it’s usually something like £10,000 (if limited at all).
