Apple Pay Cash Launches in the USA; Canadians Can Only Dream

06 December 2017

Apple Pay Cash appears in the release notes of this version, but it does not appear to be enabled yet. That is, you can send money for free if you use a debit card.

Apple wants to make it easier for you to use your phone instead of your wallet when it comes to treating your friends and family or paying them back when you owe them. "They can use the debit and credit cards they already have added to Apple Pay, so there's no need to install an app or create yet another account".

It's unclear what caused the issue, but Apple analyst Rene Ritchie claimed on Twitter that it may be due to users pre-emptively changing the date on their iPhone X to avoid their the Springboard crash. 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.

Unlike its competitors, Apple Pay Cash doesn't work on Android devices. If you're not familiar with it, it resembles Square Cash or Venmo. After that, tap the Apple Pay icon.

Looks like you'll be able to pay friends over iMessage really soon. We're hoping that this feature will be widely available in time for the holidays.

You can also invoke Siri and send money, by saying, "Send $10 to John". If you update your iPhone, you can now send cash through a text message.

The same applies to transferring money to your bank account, though the overall maximum you can beam to your account over seven days is $20,000.

Conveniently, you can also use Apple Pay Cash with all Apple Watch models running watchOS 4.2 or later.

If you have available funds you can use Apple Pay Cash just like you would any other Apple Pay card, whether in store, online, or in apps. However, in the near future, Apple will roll it out to other regions as well. Of course, you can also withdraw the balance to the associated bank account. So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.
