Apple Pay Cash service now activated for most users

New iOS 11.2 update brings Apple Pay Cash, fast wireless charging and tons of bug fixes

Apple has launched the Apple Pay Cash service in the US.

Apple Pay Cash lets users send cash directly within Messages or even ask Siri to pay someone.

The iOS 11.2 update brought the much-awaited Apple Pay Cash features to iPhone and iPad users this week. Those who receive money through Apple Pay Cash can spend it through Apple's Wallet app or transfer the money to a linked bank account. In that way, Apple Pay Cash won't pull your credit or debit card for every transaction you make. A support document issued by Apple tells users to turn off notifications for all apps on the iDevice before installing iOS 11.2. As yet there are no details on when Apple will launch it in the United Kingdom and Europe, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know. Moreover, users also disabled notifications for the affected apps to ensure that their iPhone and iPad worked without crashes. It's possible that Apple will formally activate Apple Pay Cash later this week. If you're not familiar with it, it resembles Square Cash or Venmo.

Apple Pay Cash: What Is It?

Tap the Messages App Store icon to the left of the iMessage text field, and select Apple Pay there. It is Apple's solution for peer to peer cash payments. You also have to confirm your legal name and address. However, this feature is only available in the U.S. for now.




You can send and receive cash with a minimum of $1 and a maximum amount of $3,000.

Exactly what this means for Apple's competitors, however, is unknown. The second option is to transfer money to a bank accounts.

Conveniently, you can also use Apple Pay Cash with all Apple Watch models running watchOS 4.2 or later. If that isn't the card you want to use, tap it to see a list of available cards. However, in the near future, Apple will roll it out to other regions as well.

When entering your bank account information, you need to input your account number and routing number so that you can link your Pay Cash account to your bank account.

More information can be found on Apple's support pages including details on Apple Pay Cash limits, Identity Verification, and Set up help.
