Apple made us wait a while for Apple Pay, but now that the service is out of the gate, a new rumor suggests that the company is already preparing to release the loyalty rewards program that was reportedly scheduled for a late 2015 release. According to Bank Innovation, we could see it in time for the holiday shopping season.

The details of the rumored rewards program itself are nebulous, although most sources tend to agree that it will allow retailers use iBeacons to pass along more data than what you'd get through a simple NFC connection. The service would thus generate special offers based on your preferences or purchase history. One of Bank Innovation's sources described how it would work back in August:

"One way they’ve [Apple] thought up is, say you’re in a Duane Reade [drug store], hypothetically. You get a push notification from Pepsi that they’ve worked out a deal with Duane Reade that you can get a free case of Pepsi. Just pick it up and use Apple Pay at the counter."

Most early rumors claimed Apple would hold back on the rewards program until the launch of Apple Pay 2.0 sometime late next year, but today's report claims "market demand" will cause Apple to release it within the next few weeks. There is, of course, still the possibility that the retailers themselves might not be ready for the service, as supporting it would require the optimal placement of iBeacons and the development of offers specially tailored for holiday shoppers. And time is running out quickly.

Apple officially launched Apple Pay on Monday with the release of iOS 8.1. Although the press-and-pay functionality at retails stores is currently limited to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple will also expand the service to the Apple Watch when it launches sometime next year.

Apple might be focusing its efforts with Apple Pay on the United States at the moment, but reports compiled by MacRumors demonstrate that you can use the service overseas if you have a U.S.-based credit card attached to your Apple Pay account. This isn't just true for Americans; it also allows some iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners from other countries to join in on the fun in the right circumstances.

One user on the Whirlpool forums going by the name of deeemporium reported success in using it in Australia with a Citi credit card, for instance, and blogger Beau Giles helped relay the news to the Australian masses. "Obviously I had to fake my location and use my US-based credit card," said deeemporium in the forum post. Jimmy Grewal, writing from the United Arab Emirates, reported that the service also works the same way in Dubai and environs.

Faking the location is key, unfortunately, but Giles notes that it isn't difficult. Just head over to Settings on your phone (or, soon, your iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3), press General, press Language and Region, and set your phone to the United States. Once you do so, Passbook will unlock and allow you to set up Apple Pay.

Keep in mind that there's a price to pay for getting to use such a cool feature ahead of time — if you're a native of another country, you'll likely have to pay conversion fees every time you Apple's mobile payment service. The service also only works with cards issued by banks and financial institutions who have agreed to work with Apple with the service. At the very least, for Americans, it's good to know that Apple Pay's usefulness doesn't necessarily have to end at our shores.

Improving your Numbers skillset can take some effort, but with this tutorial we can have a little fun at the same time. We’re going to design an interactive quiz you can use just for kicks or for educational purposes, then share it with friends and family — and it'll let you brush up on some spreadsheet techniques as well.

Our basic quiz lets you ask a series of questions — some with accompanying sounds, photos or even movie clips — so you can invite players to select the correct answer from a drop-down menu. If they answer correctly they score a point, and a final tally (along with a rating) is kept at the bottom. All that leaves you with is the job of populating the Welcome sheet with your quiz’s title, plus some introductory text.

 

1. Get Started

Create a blank workbook in Numbers. Click "+" next to Sheet 1 to create a second sheet. Rename Sheet 1 to “Welcome” and Sheet 2 to “Questions” by right clicking on the sheet names. Save, then switch to Questions. Resize the table to five columns, then resize each column as shown, with A as the widest.

 

2. Set up Headers

Click Format in the upper-right corner to show the Format Inspector, then set the row headers to 0. Next, type “Question” into cell A1, “Select your answer here” into B1, “Correct?” into C1 and “Score” into D1. Type “Answer” into E1. Select the header row and style it using the Format Inspector’s Text tab.

 

3. Add Choices

Type a question into A2, then select B2. On the Cell tab on the Format Inspector, change Data Format to Pop-Up Menu. Enter possible answers by double-clicking an item to rename it, or tap + for a new one. Click the Start With First Item menu and change to Start with Blank.

 

4. Answers and Formulas

Type the correct answer into cell E2, making sure it matches the answer in the pop-up menu in B2. Select cell C2, enter the formula “=IF(B2=E2, “Yes”, “No”)” and click the green check button. Type “=IF(C2=”Yes”, 1, 0)” into D2 and click the check mark.

 

5. Test the Formulas

To make sure the formulas are correct, select B2, click the drop-down menu and choose an incorrect answer. You should see “No” and “0” appear in cells C2 and D2. Select the correct answer — the cells should update to “Yes” and “1.” Once verified, set the menu back to blank.

 

6. Add More Questions

Repeat the steps for the second question. When you come to fill in C3, select C2 and press Command + C to copy. Next, select C3 and press Command + V to paste in the formula, which is automatically updated to apply to the current question. Repeat the process for D3 using D2. Use the same steps for additional questions.

 

7. Use Multimedia

You can insert sound, movies, and photos into your quiz by using the Media button or by dragging files from a Finder window into Numbers. Take care with photos — if you drag them onto a cell they embed as a background. Resize the row to accommodate the media object.

 

8. Set up Scoring

After setting up all the questions and answers, at the bottom, type “SCORE” into the next available cell in column C. Type “=SUM” into the adjacent cell in column D and select cells in column D from D2 down to the final question for the total score. Select a cell in column E and, from the top menu bar, choose Table > Hide Column.

 

9. Final Result

Add a rating for the player based on their score. Type the formula into the cell beneath the score, adapting for the number of questions and the cell the score is in. For example, if the final score tally is in D12, enter: “=IF(D12<4, “Poor”, IF(D12<7, “Okay”, IF(D12<10, “Very good”, “Perfect!”)))”
