With the service expected to be formally dated for launch during the iPad Air 2 unveiling later this week, the Apple Pay release has been prematurely teased by retail giant Walgreens.
A leaked internal memo originating from the retailer has referenced the Apple Pay release in briefing its employees on what to expect
“In preparation for the launch of Apple Pay on October 18, we would like you to cover the following material included in the tasks before activation,” the memo states.
“Walgreens will be one of the participating retailers and we want to make sure that all your team members are prepared.”
The retailer added that offering Apple Pay will “reinforce our position as a leader and innovator in the mobile world”.
Set to be exclusively available in the US at first, there is currently no word on when Apple Pay will make it to UK shores.
Detailing the service, the Walgreens memo read: “Customers that participate in Apple Pay will immediately be able to use the service that is easy, secure and ensures their privacy.”
