Late last year Apple unveiled its new payments service aptly called Apple Pay. The United States was the first market for this service and so far it has remained the only market in which Apple’s payment service works. There has been talk about expansion but nothing concrete has happened since then. According to a new report, it might be the United Kingdom that gets to be the first international market for Apple Pay, it’s expected that the service will be launched in the UK over this summer.

There were even rumors at one point in time that Apple was in negotiations to launch the service in China, many thought that China would have been the first international market outside of the United States to support Apple Pay.

Apparently that’s not the case. According to sources who spoke with The Telegraph, Apple Pay is going to be launched in the United Kingdom this summer. The company is expected to make this announcement tomorrow during its keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2015.

It’s also believed that the company is going to confirm a rewards program for Apple Pay during its keynote at WWDC 2015, so that’s another thing to look out for.

Once the service is formally launched across the pond, it will work with more than 350,000 contactless payment terminals already in place across various outlets and merchants in the country. After the UK, Apple Pay is expected to be launched in Canada later this year.
