Apple Pay. The unapologetically Apple payment system which aims to replace plastic (see what I did there?).
9to5Mac reports that Apple Pay will launch in the UK on July 14th 2015, and its sources are very, very specific.
Another retailer shows the same date, with training kicking off a couple of days in advance. Apple POS systems (like this) will be updated for NFC payments.
According to the report Apple Pay will be capped at £20 per transaction, which means you won’t be able to purchase a lightning to SD card reader adapter in an Apple Store (£25). You will however be able to get a USB to lightning adapter though (£15).
I’m sure at least one member of our team will be trying out Apple Pay shortly after launch here in the UK, so keep an eye on Coolsmartphone.com and we will let you know what we think.
