    Hi Guys,

    As you may know Apple announced in the WWDC that Apple Pay will be (finally) coming to the UK in July. As I've got iOS 9 beta installed, what is the likelihood that Apple Pay will be active and working on the beta?

    I don't really wish to downgrade to iOS 8.4 just to use/try out Apple Pay, but if its not available on the beta, I may have to downgrade.

    Thanks ;)

    Edit: Do those of you in the US with iOS 9 beta have Apple Pay working?

    I briefly tried iOS 9 on my iPad Air 2. Changing the region to United States brought up the Apple Pay 'feature' under Settings so I'd hazard a guess and say once it's activated (by Apple & the banks) it'll work under the UK region setting also.

    My Santander Visa Debit card and 123 MasterCard have the Terms ready (when I tried it on 8.4) so they are pretty much good to go.

    I'm a dev, but if you have any UK questions wife works at an institution in the UK can bounce some AQ's to her if it helps?

    This makes me question when in July Apple Pay UK will be launched, it said July, but no date so does this mean the 1st July as the T&C's are good to go, would make sense for it to be included in the 8.4 update/9.0 new seed with Apple Music, or not?

    My bank (first direct) has confirmed 1st and doing so openly if you speak to them. They seem very much geared up for that date.
