The setup screens not are public-facing yet as Apple appears to be working on Apple Pay behind the scenes. The setup screen in Passbook is similar to that of Passes, with a prompt that provides information on using Apple Pay and a setup link.
iPhone users are brought to a page in which they can manually enter their credit card information for use with Apple Pay, including full name, card number, expiration date and security code. There is also an option to take a photo of your credit card for the number to be inputted automatically.
A sneak peek at the non-public-facing setup screens:
Sood has a respectable track record at discovering hidden settings and features within iOS betas over the past few years, lending some credibility to the legitimacy of these screenshots. The timing of these setup screens also coincides with the imminent launch of Apple Pay.
While a larger setup screen was also unearthed on the iPad, it does not appear that the current-generation tablets will support Apple Pay in retail stores. The iPad lacks the NFC technology required for Apple Pay and does not have a Touch ID fingerprint scanner for an added layer of security.
Apple Pay was introduced last month as an NFC-based mobile payments system for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, in addition to backwards compatibility with the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s when paired with an Apple Watch. The service is expected to roll out in the United States later this month, with over 220,000 participating stores through retail partners.
Apple Pay is powered by the NFC chip on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. When you want to make a payment, simply hold your iPhone near the point-of-sale system and verify you are the card holder by scanning your thumb with Touch ID. The system stores your credit card info in an encrypted and secure fashion using Touch ID and the A8 chip.
