    sadly I'm unable to download 8.4 until I'm back on WiFi at home but I notice there's no mention of Apple Pay UK support in the release notes. Can anyone who's downloaded and installed confirm whether there is any support?

    No sign of it. Nothing in the release notes, and Passbook is unchanged.

    Gutted to hear that. Looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer until an 8.4.1 release later in the month

    Really disappointed about this... Should have known that if Apple say July release that could be at any point in July. I don't trust what the banks are saying about 1/7 activation.

    It's only a toggle at apples end. No update needed. It has existed in the OS since it went live in the states.

    I don't think it'll take an OS update to enable it. I (probably) could be wrong but it seems to be set to region and the facility is already there in passbook and apple just need to enable it?

    oh that's good news. I assumed it would have to be part of an update. Cheers.

    I think they only said coming in July so there's no guarantee it will be tomorrow.

    Participating banks have said that it'll launch tomorrow, but of course that's to be taken with a heap of salt.

    Tiny at the bottom of this page

    https://www.apple.com/uk/apple-pay/

    Available in U.S.

    Nonetheless, the page explains how to set it up and all the banks are UK ones... Can't do it after upgrade either, thought I could

    The only reason an update was required for the US was because the Apple Pay software wasn't even on the device before that. I agree with you that an update probably isn't required.

    I've seen another post within the MacRumors forums that First Direct have said it'll launch 1/7.

    Prior to today I could get as far as the Terms & Conditions Santander UK had laid out with my Visa Debit card and MasterCard credit card (when the region was set as 'United States.')

    For a while today I was unable to try again (whilst Apple were preparing to roll out 8.4 to the public) and any attempts since then tell me it's not possible to add a card at this time.

    If the wording on the keynote was "from July", it would certain suggest a release tomorrow. But two iOS updates in the same week ? Seems unlikely. I know you can change your region to US now to enable apple pay options but for the general public will require a small patch like 8.4.1.

    Nothing from Natwest yet - this from their forums last Thursday: " just to keep you all posted, the live date will be in July as mentioned by Apple at their recent Keynote, we'll be able to give you the exact date as soon as we know"

    Ok just spoke to a friend who works at Santander UK and "mid july" is what's being bounced around internally and I was also informed of a daily £15k limit! That should cover most things :/
