    it would be cool if for starting with iPhone 6S and 6S Plus if you could send money to someone elses iPhone by having them close to each other.

    Apple Pay 2.0:

    Apple Pay Rewards program
    Send money to verified friends

    I agree completely. I would certainly use it. I use Chase Quick Pay and Pay Pal pretty regularly. If apple had a streamlined alternative I'd use that before the other two.

    I hope they open the NFC chip/methods to read / write with some apps.

    The new iPhones still have the NFC chip but its not open to use that function.

    That would be really cool! I just started using Apple Pay and I can see how useful it could become.

    This.
    I'd like to open the turnstile to get on the train/metro by putting my phone close to it instead of using a public transit card or buy a ticket

    I've e-mailed AMEX UK and from their response I don't think we will see Apple Pay in UK this year :( .

    I don't want that - I think opening it up for both ways would be an entry for someone getting close and stealing money from you (I know you need fingerprint etc. but it is an opening). I can't also remember the last time I gave money (other than cash to put in a parking meter) someone close to you. Some banks allow you to "text" money to someone.

    Sending money to friends that would be freakin awesome. It can be very useful when there's splitting bill at the restaurant. One person just do the full bill, and the other people can pay their share with apple pay.

    Not so sure Aplle will be opening up it NFC functions any time soon. I would open up all kind of possibilities, both good and bad.

    If you're sending money to "verified friends" then you shouldn't need to use NFC. There's are online services that can do that. NFC is really more for business transactions where you don't have a prior relationship with the person.

    That "opening" already exists considering anyone with an NFC reader could activate NFC on an iPhone. This wouldn't open it up any more, so long s the fingerprint (or on-wrist wear with Apple Watch) continues to be a requirement.

    Anything that motivates more people to use Apple Pay can only be a good thing! I would be interested in the rewards program.
