In February, Apple Pay's U.S. support infrastructure reached 1,000 participating card issuers, a milestone for the nascent mobile payments platform. The company regularly adds to its list as smaller regional banks and credit unions around the country jump on board.

Apple Pay was announced in 2014 and first saw release in the U.S., later expanding to the UK, Australia and Canada. Apple's payment service reached the huge Asian market of China in February. Most recently, Apple Pay launched in Singapore on Monday through a partnership with American Express.

Update: Although the University of Wisconsin Credit Union briefly appeared to have been removed from the Apple Pay roster, the institution is now simply listed as "University of Wisconsin."
