Here are your Apple Rumors for today:

apple-rumors-pay-uk-banks-aapliTunes: Apple (AAPL) has released The Interview on iTunes, reports BGR. The tech company initially turned down an offer to carry The Interview on iTunes, but has now changed it’s mind on the subject. Those looking to watch the movie on iTunes can either rent it for $6 or buy it for $15. The film has been available on other services, such as YouTube, since Dec. 24. Apple didn’t explain why it delayed putting The Interview on iTunes.

UK: Apple is currently in talks with UK banks to bring Pay to the area, MacRumors notes. Top banks in the country are in negotiations with the company over bringing the service to it in early 2015. While the banks have admitted that they are interested in the service due to its positive reception in the U.S., they are still hesitant due to the amount of private information Apple would need for it. Other areas that Apple is working to bring Pay to include Africa, the Middle East, India and other parts of Europe.

Pay: Chevron (CVX) will start supporting Apple Pay more in 2015, reports AppleInsider. Starting in early 2015, Pay will be able to be used at pumps at Chevron locations. The company has been a supporter of Pay since it launched in October, but it currently only allow users to pay with it inside of its stores. The reason for delay in Pay working at pumps is that the NFC technology isn’t compatible with the current systems equipped at the stations.
