Apple Pay Coming To The UK On July 14th

Looks like Apple is planning to expand its Apple Pay mobile payments service in the United Kingdom on July 14th. Apple has begun enabling its sale systems in England based stores to take NFC payments and has been preparing materials to promote the Apple Pay launch in stores. Announced back in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference, the U.K.’s Apple Pay launch will mark Apple’s first expansion of the service outside of the United States. Like in the U.S., a PIN won’t be required for usage, but the launch will include a £20 cap per transaction, as also noted on the above memo sent to us and posted across the web. However, a source tells us that U.K. systems will be updated in the fall to process higher values. Apple is also currently working on bringing the service to Canada later this year as well as China and South Korea sometime soon.
