iOS 8.1 beta shows Apple Pay to work with Siri

“iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users will soon be able to use Siri to access credit cards stored in the Passbook app, if the beta version of iOS 8.1 is any indicator,” Mike Beasley reports for 9to5Mac.

“Starting with version 8.1, if you ask Siri to show a credit card, the phone will bring up Passbook,” Beasley reports. “Currently the app lacks the ability to add credit cards, but Apple has previously confirmed that this will be the application to manage Apple Pay cards.”

      1. You are so right. I have a 2013 Acura MDX. No pairing with iPhone 6. I had the same problem with iOS 7 last year. About a month later Acura updated the software in the car and it worked fine. Acura website shows they pair only up to iOS 6. But I know 7 was fine. I think it is an iPhone 6 problem.

        1. Funny, my iPhone 6 Plus has zero problems pairing with my car’s system over Bluetooth. It sounds like an Acura problem, not an Apple one. Especially since iOS 7 started working for you only AFTER Acura updated their software …

          1. Do a quick search for something along the lines of “bluetooth in car broken in iOS8” and you will find a wealth of reports of problems on a wide range of car models. I have encountered this problem on two different models of iPhone in two different vehicles, neither of which is an Acura.

      2. I didn’t down vote and rarely vote anyway, but it’s pretty obvious that some people express disapproval by down voting comments which veer off topic. As this story and the linked article were solely about Apple Pay and Siri, I can understand why people might feel that this article is not the right place to discuss BlueTooth connectivity issues.

        Some people try to divert threads to suit their chosen agenda and when people do that, they invite a negative response.
