The month of October is upon us, which means Apple is set to unveil the new iPads. But besides this big event, we're also waiting for some iOS 8 bugs to be fixed, and the Apple Pay service to become fully operational. And, if a recent report is anything to go by, this could happen in the same time.
Bank Innovation website claims that according to “multiple sources close to Apple,” the mobile payment service is scheduled to launch on October 20, alongside iOS 8.1. Apple released recently the first beta of iOS 8.1 to developers, and hidden settings were hinting towards Apple Pay integration.
Bank Innovation says the code is there because Apple is testing Apple Pay before the official launch. As a reminder, Apple Pay will allow iDevice owners to pay for goods and services both online and in physical stores using their handsets. Here are some more details from the original report:
The publication also said that Apple makes massive security advances in the payments field. So, if this rumor, along many previous one makes any sense, then ApplePay should get launched along with the new iPads.
