Apple Pay to reach UK on July 14th ?

You might not have to wait the whole July in order to be able to use Apple Pay in the UK. Multiple retailer leaks at 9to5Mac show that Apple will be launching its iPhone payment service on July 14th.

Apple Pay will work with all contactless terminals currently used by thousands of retailers all over the UK. The problem is that customers will be forced to stay under the £20 limit but the it will rise to £30 in September so don’t forget to bring some cash with you!

The service is built from the ground up to work beyond those limits, but retailers will have upgraded their hardware to support a technology known as “Consumer Device Cardholder Verification Method”.

Apple Pay is as simple as holding your iPhone or smartwatch close to a contactless terminal and then using Touch ID to authenticate the transaction.

Apple stated that by this fall, Apple Pay will work with nearly 70% of credit and debit cards in the UK.
