Screenshots from iOS 8.1 beta 2 confirm Apple Pay is coming on iOS 8.1

A few days ago, there was speculation that the iOS 8.1 update will start rolling out on October 20th. As you can see from the screenshots, it is pretty clear that Apple Pay will be part of the update.
Apple Pay will use the Touch ID fingerprint scanner and NFC, to help make payments in 220,000 locations at launch. Users will select which credit card they want to charge a transaction to, and then put their iPhone next to the POS terminal. The user then presses down on the Touch ID button. In a flash, the user's identity is verified and the payment is accepted by the retailer.

If you ALREADY have Cash or Credit / Debit card or Cheque I am sure that ALL 220,000 establishments that accept Apple Pay will accept one or all of the other payment methods also. Apple pay is a money stream as Apple receives 15c per transaction NFC (Not for Charity) funtionality in the IP6 / IP6+ is to facilitate contactless payment ALL OTHER NFC PROFILES HAVE BEEN DISABLED For Apple pay to work you need 1) An IP6 / IP6+ 2) Credit / Debit card 3) An establishment with a NFC terminal If just ONE of these are missing Apple pay does not work As Apple pay is NOT new technology in essence all those people who in 2012 were contracted to the iPhone5 have NOT upgraded but signed up for a larger display iPhone 5. Apple Pay the biggest NON PHONE GIMMICK of this decade, but is NOT essential as there are already many ways to pay for items, indeed as my credit card was updated to have be contactless also There are occasions when I would NOT want to get my phone out so paying for something "Apple Pay" saves you how much time ? Like a magic tricks it is a diversionary rouse which has worked as many do not realise Apple have 2 years later the resold the exact same phone but bigger IPhone5http://www.phonearena.com/phon

I'm was/still waiting for this kind of payment system. I'm sticking to my iP5s for another year, but I'm glad Apple is the company pushing this since I prefer the ecosystem. Hopefully it'll be a household item by the time I'm ready to upgrade... DJ, do share your experience when you start using it...

Probably be iP6s (the smaller one). I carried iP3GS for 4.5 years - don't be surprised if I'm holding on to my iP5s for that long. The ome biggest thing it will push me for a new phone is the money I can make when switching iPhones - at the end of a 2 year contract I can sell my iPhone for $400-500, and buy the next one for $200 and keep the rest or get the 128GB and probably end up with some cash left over. iPhones are so cheap - you make money when u get a new one - lol.
