So with Apple confirming that Apple Pay is coming to the UK next month (July 2015), TfL confirmed in a press release that you’ll be able to use Apple Pay to travel on TfL services.

This means you’ll be able to tap your iPhone 6, 6 Plus or Apple Watch against a yellow Oyster pad, and pay for your travel that way.

“TfL was the first public transport provider to accept contactless payment cards and will continue this record of innovation by becoming the first to accept Apple Pay. TfL developed the contactless technology needed to travel on its services in-house and is leading the way with over 100 million contactless journeys made on its services since it launched in September 2014.”
