The current expected timetable for the public release is schedule for October 20.
According to Bank Innovation, various sources who are aware of Apple’s inside plans have claimed that Apple Pay is going to be part of the iOS 8.1 which is scheduled for a public release on October 20th. As far as reports from MacRumors are concerned, they say that iOS 8.1 contains hidden code that will allow Apple to “test” Apple Pay with the private beta release of iOS 8.1. Mark Gurman from 9to5Mac has stated that these recent leaks support the idea that Apple has completely shifted its development timetable.

According to Apple’s normal schedule, the “iOS x.1” was expected to make its run in the market somewhere in the beginning of next year. But as we can deduce from the data compiled by 9to5Mac’s page view analytics service, Apple is already working on iOS 8.1, 8.2., and 8.3 at the same time. Sources have also been claiming that the Apple Pay has been attached to the iOS 8.1 since the September 9th event and this second updated version is expected to make its way in October. This release is believed to affect all Apple services in a good way.
Prior to this revelation, 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. From what we have conclude, we can expect the iOS 8.1 release to be timed to the still-unconfirmed October event held by Apple to announce their new iPad devices. This is in line with what other websites have reported on Apple’s plans.
This information pertaining to the beta release has been confirmed by numerous other sources. A while back developers had been showing concern over not being able to test the beta before the actual thing released for the public but it has been confirmed that Apple is most likely going to stick to its schedule of October as planned earlier.
