We may have been hearing about Apple Pay for what seems like a few months now, but there has never really been any clear picture as to when it will be rolled out to those who use iPhones in the UK, until now that is.
It may have already been integrated in the US, and while there haven’t been any official figures released yet about how popular it is or how it is performing, it has certainly been causing quite a stir and it looks like it won’t be long now until we can use it here.
While Apple has still not announced anything, the company has listed a new job listing for an ‘Apple Pay Intern’ on its jobs website who will help “drive out the roll-out” of the feature, stating that the position will be based in London.
Apple Pay allows users to pay for their goods using their Apple device and the ad, which was spotted by iClarified, also suggests that the feature will be soon used around the globe and not just in the UK and USA.
The ad stated that: “Apple Pay is a new and exciting area in Apple that is set to expand across Europe, Middle East, India and Africa. Apple Pay will change the way consumers pay with breakthrough contactless payment technology and unique security features built right into their iPhone 6 or Apple Watch to pay in an easy, secure, and private way.”
While the ad is for an intern, it does perhaps suggest that the core team has already been assembled and if this is the case then it is looking likely that we will have Apple Pay within the next few months and given that the Apple Watch is due for release in the new year, this seems to make sense.
This news comes after rumours have begun to circulate suggesting that Samsung is also looking to develop a similar paying system which will rival Apple Pay. As always when it comes to smartphone news we are sure these rumours will all come to light in the near future.
