Apple is poised to reveal that it is planning to launch Apple Pay, its contactless mobile payments service, in Britain this summer. The Silicon Valley giant is expected to make the announcement on Monday in San Francisco at its annual jamboree for software developers, industry sources say. The service will be switched on in around two months, they said. It will mark a major development for the payments industry. Multiple attempts by mobile operators and banks to get contactless mobile payments up and running in Britain have failed amid industry infighting and consumer indifference. Apple has been in talks with banks and retailers about its launch since last year, sources said, and has the clout to drive adoption by both industry and consumers.
Hopefully, this is confirmed later at WWDC – Apple Pay is going to be huge here in the U.K.
