Apple Pay to launch on October 18 according to report

Macrumors reports that Apple Pay is around the corner.

An internal memo addressed to Walgreens employees designed to prepare them for the upcoming launch of Apple Pay suggests that Apple’s new payments service might be going live on Saturday, October 18.

It’d make more sense to launch on October 16, after the Apple event (my predictions can be found here), but then again perhaps Apple want some time to get the Apple Pay enabling version of iOS, 8.1, out to the masses first. We’ll know soon enough, and please remember to treat this as a rumor for now.

Thoughts? Let @tdh know on Twitter, or find me elsewhere. There is also a newsletter.
