Apple Pay Cash is available in iMessage to iOS 11.2 beta users

Posted November 08, 2017

If you turn off Apple Pay Cash for any one device, you can still use Apple Pay Cash on other devices where you're signed in with your Apple ID.

We'll let you know when iOS 11.2 and watchOS 4.2 are official and whenever Apple Pay Cash becomes available outside the US.

With Apple Pay Cash, people can send money and get paid directly in the Messages app or by using virtual assistant Siri.

The BBC has contacted Apple for comment.

"We are aware of this autocorrect bug", an Apple spokesperson told The Register via email. The move suggests the upcoming launch of iOS 11.2 will include the new service.

Once the money arrives to the Apple Pay Cash card, it's immediately usable anywhere that accepts Apple Pay.

Apple's now on its second iOS 11.2 beta and we expect the company to release a few more as it adds additional polish ahead of the final release.

Users will be able to add money to the card or transfer it out to their bank accounts.

There are no fees to dispatch money with your debit or Apple Pay Cash card, though you will have to pay a typical 3% fee to send money through a credit card. This can take up to three days with each of the four P2P payment services.

That said, we could see the iOS 11.2 update emerge alongside the HomePod speaker in December. iOS 11.2 delivers SiriKit for HomePod. You'll need at least $10 loaded into Apple Pay Cash to use it, and you'll need to have two-factor authentication enabled.
