Apple Pay Cash Debuts In Challenge to Venmo

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

There's no news yet on when Apple Pay Cash will become available in the United States.

The new iOS 11.2 update is designed for the compatible devices including iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and other Apple devices starting from iPhone 5S or newer, 5th Gen iPad or newer and iPod touch 6th Gen.

A direct competitor to other digital cash apps like Venmo and Square Cash, Apple Pay Cash was first announced in June, at Apple's annual developer's conference.

Users took to Internet forums early this weekend after discovering an iOS 11 bug that made their iPhones crash after 12:15am on December 2. It's possible that Apple will formally activate Apple Pay Cash later this week.

Freeze resigned over off-field issues - including allegations that he repeatedly made phone calls to escort services - in July. The ruling said that Freeze promoted an atmosphere of rules compliance, but that he failed to monitor his staff.

The iOS 11.2 update brought the much-awaited Apple Pay Cash features to iPhone and iPad users this week. Apparently, Apple issued an advisory asking users to switch back the date to December 1 as a temporary solution. Because of the rush, however, it also rolled out a feature that was practically useless at that time: Apple Pay Cash. Open iMessage. Tap the App Store icon. Oh, and you'll need to have two-factor authentication turned on, and be over 18. Here's everything you need to know. The good news is that the gang in Cupertino have now flicked the switch turning on Apple Pay Cash. You also have to confirm your legal name and address. You can then enter the amount you want to send or request, and send it as a message. When users get paid, the money stays on the Apple Pay Cash card. Money that you receive is routed to your Pay Cash card, which you can either use for purchases wherever it's supported, or you can transfer it to a connected bank account.

Users can also just simply ask Siri to send someone money which is very convenient. You can find out how to set up your Apple Pay Cash card here.

No more excuses for that "friend" who doesn't carry cash.
