The developer also found evidence of Apple Pay setup screens on the iPad, hinting Touch ID will be announced soon at Apple’s upcoming event on October 16, made official this morning. The question remains whether new iPads will also include NFC for Apple Pay, or if the setup screens are for using the payment service within apps such as the Apple Store iOS app.

There’s no word on when Apple Pay will debut outside the U.S.; Canadian users are eagerly awaiting the service to arrive here given the vast number of retailers using existing NFC payment terminals. TD bank recently noted Apple Pay most likely will face numerous regulatory issues before arriving in Canada.
