(Updated with US Bank confirmation, other banks going live) A second wave of banks has begun supporting Apple Pay. The largest credit union in the US, Navy Federal, is officially launching support today. Another institution -- USAA -- was supposed to enable support on the 7th, but anecdotes indicate that its cards are already working. Similar reports are coming in for US Bank and PNC Bank, even though PNC has only promised compatibility in the "next several weeks."

When Apple Pay debuted on October 20, only a handful of major banks were ready, including Citi, Chase, Capital One, and Bank of America. Apple is eventually planning to have over 500 banks on its roster, and expand beyond the US to countries like China. To do this, the company has to not only negotiate with banks and merchants, but meet different sets of regulatory standards.

Update: US Bank has confirmed its support through a press release. More reports from other bank cardholders are arriving at the same time, suggesting that Barclaycard and M&T Bank have also switched on compatibility.

It appears Apple has knocked this one out of the ball park although there are those who say the ball barely cleared the stadium walls.
