Apple will reportedly release iOS 8.1 and launch Apple Pay on October 20th, according to Bank Innovation.

Sources close to Apple have been confirming that Apple Pay would be attached to iOS 8.1 since the September 9 iPhone event held earlier this month. Sources who spoke to Bank Innovation indicated that the public release of iOS 8.1 will be in sometime in October and may have improvements for other Apple services. Previously, 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman reported that iOS 8 will be adding major improvements to the Apple Maps app, which hasn’t been added on to the initial (very buggy) release of iOS 8. We expect that the iOS 8.1 release will be timed to the still-unconfirmed October event held by Apple to announce their new iPad devices, as other websites have previously reported and Bank Innovation has heard rumors about, as well.

Apple seeded the first beta of iOS 8.1 to developers for download and testing on September 29th. Developer Hamza Sood managed to unearth Apple Pay settings and privacy information in the beta release.

All I care about is the new iPads, is Apple coming out with that super pad or is the Air2 will have 256GB? that's what I'm looking forward.

In my country we already use our iPhones to pay with Air Drop, to the stores or to any body that you owe money transfer from one phone to another easy and works perfectly even on Androids.

Let me just say, you're going to find ApplePay *very* cool the first couple of times you use it. Because it really is awesome. Sadly, until the expectation is that everyone can take NFC, you're still going to have to carry a wallet with real credit cards.

Yeah, that's why they need to make a 4" phone because that's the only reason why I stay with the 5s. 4.7" makes a difference compared to 4 and I really would upgrade if Apple did keep the smaller version, but hey maybe the next generation will be a surprise. Maybe they are saying some things for it.

I think it will be at October 17th becasue T-Mobile two times says about this date and current iOS version on this website: So something will happen at 17th this month!
