Apple Pay Cash is rolling out for iOS 11.2 users

Share this story

Apple was forced to release iOS 11.2 on Saturday, which was a little earlier than planned, due to a software bug. Now, Apple Pay Cash — one of the marquee features of the update — is being activated for users.

Apple Pay Cash lets users send and receive money directly though iMessages, similar to Venmo or Square Cash. Money that people send you will live on a digital Apple Pay Cash card in the Wallet app, which users can spend anywhere that Apple Pay is accepted, or send to other people. (The new feature is only available in the US for now, though.)

The new feature was originally supposed to be released in the initial version of iOS 11, but it was delayed back in September, along with the still-unreleased Messages in the Cloud and AirPlay 2. (Those also have yet to be released.)

Apple Pay Cash seems to be rolling out slowly to users, so if it isn’t showing up for you yet, just be patient.

Update 4:20pm: Included fact that Apple Pay Cash is only available in the US.
