What do I need to be able to see my UK bank balance in Apple Wallet?

In order to be able to see your UK bank balance in Apple Wallet, you’ll need to be running iOS 17.1 or later. The official release of iOS 17.1 isn’t yet available, so you’ll need to wait until it’s released and update your iPhone, or you can sign up to install the iOS 17.1 public beta.

Is the Wallet bank balance feature available in other countries?

Currently, this feature is available exclusively in the UK, as it relies on using the UK’s Open Banking framework. However, all indications are that Apple is working on making the feature available in the US. Whether it eventually makes it to other countries remains to be seen.
