Starbucks today upgraded its iOS application to add assistance for Apple Pay, making it possible for iOS customers to reload their Starbucks cards utilizing Apple’s repayments service.

Starbucks was detailed as an Apple Pay app partner when Apple Pay released in October, however it has taken many months for the feature to be readily available to Apple Pay customers. Apple Pay can simply be used in the Starbucks app for reloading Starbucks cards due to the fact that Starbucks is not an Apple Pay retail partner.
