Apple has stopped offering financing options to customers in the United Kingdom, as indicated by the elimination of its UK financing page, which was removed from the UK Apple site this afternoon.

Apple previously allowed customers in the UK to sign up for financing on Apple products through PayPal Credit or Barclays when checking out from the online Apple Store. PayPal Credit could be used on purchases with a £99 minimum, while Barclays was available for purchases over £399.

When making a purchase through the Apple site in the UK, there are now no financing options to select at checkout, and the finance pages that were previously available now redirect to the main UK site.

Apple previously eliminated financing options in Canada back in June of 2017, but in the United States, Apple still offers financing through the Barclaycard Visa that includes Apple Rewards points.

Apple also continues to offer financing options for educational institutions in the UK, and financing on iPhones continues to be available through the UK iPhone Upgrade Program in partnership with Barclays.

They obviously got rid of financing in Canada and the U.K. because there were just too many extra u's to deal with when people wanted to finance their "favourite" products. In the U.S. it's much less of a hassle since they only have to offer financing for our "favorite" products. And that's not even considering dealing with different "colours" on various products. Until the British and Canadians get their spelling under control, they'll just have to find other financing options... (Hopefully people won't take this the wrong way—just a bit of "humour".)

Right, I’m calm. This better be some temporary thing. Switching suppliers or offering their own credit or some nonsense.

Why would anyone want Apple's credit anyway? John Lewis allows you to buy Apple stuff at 0% interest if you're wanting to do it that way.

Nobody really cares to do this anyway. “Bring your own financing” via a credit card is what most do.
