iOS 8.1 beta code reveals Apple Pay support for the iPhone 6 and iPad

In case users were wondering where Apple Pay was on their brand new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus it looks to be coming with iOS 8.1.

A developer with access to the iOS 8.1 beta named Hamza Sood tweeted a screenshot revealing a new section of settings allowing users to fill in their pertinent billing information. This includes credit or debit card numbers, addresses, phone number and email all of which point to Apple's tap based payment system.

In the another screenshot you can also Apple Pay's privacy policy, which adds further evidence to iOS 8.1 will include the NFC-powered payment method.

Tablet-sized wallets

Sood also claims to have discovered another string of code, which reveals the iPad will get Touch ID and allow users to make purchases though apps with Apple Pay.

However, the United Kingdom-based programmer also clarified the code makes no mention of NFC. So users might not be bopping credit card machines with the iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3 in the near future.

Apple Pay is slated to launch in the coming month. Meanwhile, the Cupertino is also expected to hold yet another press event where the company has been rumored to unveil new iPads and OS X Yosemite.

Like a perfect storm of tech announcements, it seems very likely Apple will unveil its next line of tablets running the full commercial build of iOS 8.1.
