Burger King, a restaurant that is very well-known in the United States, has apparently pulled Apple Pay support from its iOS app over the last week after updating the UI of it.
According to a post on Reddit, Burger King has dropped Apple Pay support from its app. The only way that users can pay for their meals through the app now is by manually typing in a credit card number into the user’s account and using that as the payment method.
There has been one tweet about the new app update, with the tweet noting that Burger King should bring back Apple Pay support to it:
@BurgerKing Thank you for getting rid of your old mobile app platform and switching to the new one. Mobile ordering was basically a disaster with the old app, but my first attempt with the new app on iOS today was successful. So far so good. Please add Apple Pay support.

Burger King does still accept Apple Pay in their restaurants, so if push comes to shove and not only do you want a Whopper but also want to pay for it with Apple Pay, going to one of their locations and paying for it with Apple Pay is still an option.
Other fast-food apps like McDonald’s, Subway, Taco Bell and Jimmy John’s all accept Apple Pay, so it is truly unknown why Burger King would pull a move like this.
