Apple Launches Apple Pay Cash

Apple Launches Apple Pay Cash

Users have also reported problems with Face ID in iPhone X after updating, but most have found a reboot after installation clears up the problem.

Some iPhone users woke up this weekend to continuously crashing iPhones, iPads, and other iDevices, and Apple has pushed out its iOS 11.2 software update early to fix this and numerous other issues.

The new service requires iOS 11.2 or watchOS 11.2.

Now Apple has flipped the switch meaning all United States users can begin using the Square Cash and Venmo competitor. This is Apple's peer-to-peer payment system that lets users send and receive money through iMessage. A support document issued by Apple tells users to turn off notifications for all apps on the iDevice before installing iOS 11.2.

iOS 11.2 also adds support for Apple Cash Pay. What are your thoughts on the Apple Pay Cash integration in iOS 11.2?




You first need to set up your Apple Pay Cash card on iOS 11.2. Here's everything you need to know.

Just because you have more than one card linked to Apple Pay doesn't mean you can use any of them with Apple Pay Cash. If you use a credit card, there is a 3% fee on each transaction, which can be avoided altogether by using a debit card. To verify, enter your SSN and date of birth. You can then choose what you want to do with the money once it is received. The second option is to transfer money to a bank accounts.

Note that some stores might ask for your debit PIN when using your Apple Pay Cash balance, which is 0000, you can check this just under Device Account Details in Settings if you forget. But Apple Pay Cash is different.

Saying something like "Send x dollars to Zac using Apple Pay cash" is a super fast and satisfying way to pay others. We're hoping that this feature will be widely available in time for the holidays.
