Some people claimed that Apple may have launched its new Apple Pay service in the UK earlier this week, however that obviously didn’t happen.

Now 9to5mac are reporting that the launch date for Apple Pay in the UK will now be July 14th, citing sources from a number of retailers, the site is reporting that Apple has already informed a selection of Apple Retail employees in the UK that support will go live on Tuesday.

They also show some internal memos from the supermarket Waitrose, which can be seen in the image above.

Alongside this 9to5mac is also claiming that Apple will be training UK staff on support for Apple Pay on July 12th, with materials being prepared for the promotion of Apple Pay in various stores for NFC payments.

Apple first announced that Apple Pay will launch in the UK in July back in June, expanding the service outside of the US.

When it does launch a PIN won’t be required for payments, but there will be a £20 cap per transaction.
