Frustrated iPhone users report problems with Apple Pay

Disgruntled Apple customers took to Twitter after finding problems with the new contactless Apple Pay service within hours of it launching in the UK.

Many complained that not all banks supported the new feature or could not get their cards to register.

But others apparently had no problem using the payment method.

Briton Sir Jonathan Ive has inched a step closer to the top job at Apple, after being promoted to chief design officer at the tech giant.

The man behind the iconic designs of the iPod, iPhone and iPad revealed his new position in an interview with Stephen Fry in the Daily Telegraph.

The designer, from Chingford in north-east London, has led Apple's design team since the mid-1990s and, alongside former chief executive Steve Jobs, helped bring the firm back from the brink of financial ruin.

Sir Jonathan was made a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE) in 2012 for services to design and enterprise.
