Apple Pay expected to arrive in the UK next week

At last month's WWDC it was announced that Apple Pay would be making its way to the UK at some point in July, but we were never given a concrete date. However, the folks over at 9to5Mac have been tipped off that the new contactless payment method will be with us is just over a week's time - on July 14th, to be exact.

The news has emerged thanks to leaked images of memos meant for the staff of high street retailers. The letters and guides explain how Apple Pay will work, how both the iPhone and Apple Watch will be compatible, and confirmed the already announced spending limit of £20 per transaction. As previously reported at WWDC, Apple claim there will be 250,000 locations that will accept the payment method, including McDonalds, Marks & Spencers, and the Post Office. The most notable addition to that list was the London transport network, so those without an Oyster Card can avoid queuing at the machines every time they want to jump on the tube.
