    Have fun updating!

    I'm updating through iTunes, and there is currently an error. This may be due to Apple's servers not being able to handle the traffic.

    I'm updating through the iPhone. It's currently -- slowly -- downloading. I tried going through iTunes, but I got the same error message you got.

    Can't wait for the "Apple Pay charged my card $800 for a cup of coffee" threads.

    My download and install was fast..

    As I reported in the other thread, everything appears to be working fine. LTE and WiFi are a-ok..

    In Passbook there is now an option to set up Apple Pay. I added my Visa but it said my bank was not supported (which I already knew). So that's a bummer = for me..

    SMS on Mac works after you approve the Mac via a displayed code that's entered on the iPhone for approval..

    So far so good!

    I added my Capital One debit card. I will hopefully get to try it out tomorrow at Whole Foods.

    It's a whopper of a download via iTunes: 2.25 GB (iPhone 6 Plus edition). It's coming in pretty fast considering how many people must be downloading it.

    Ditto! I am lazy and like the option to send and receive from the Mac. Often times my phone is across the room but my Mac is right in front of my face or within reaching distance...

    I knew Apple Pay would not work as I use a small bank. I emailed them last month asking if they would support it, and never received a response.. I will wait and see. If they don't support it by next year, I will email them again..

    I started a text on my Mac and had a pop up asking if I wanted to use the feature. Then it displayed a code that I entered on the iPhone...

    After that initial set up, it all works fine between the 2..

    If you can't add your card yet, will NFC still be useable? How is payment processed using NFC? iTunes, or through your bank?
