Today Apple released its second beta iOS 11.2 for public testing. The update was released just a day after the release of iOS 11.2 beta 2 for developers and contains one key new feature – Apple Pay Cash. The mobile payments feature, first unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference this summer, allows users iOS to send and receive money through the Messages app.
With Apple Pay you can send and receive money directly through Messages or by giving the command Siri. There is no need to download a separate application, and you can also use the maps already saved on the device. Send money to your son for textbooks. Pay the nanny. Send and receive money from the same table or from other parts of the country. And all this is instant.
To use Apple Pay Cash, you must have iOS 11.2 or newer, two-factor authentication Apple ID, and a compatible connected card. If you have all this, you can enable the function in Settings> Wallet and Apple Pay> Apple Pay Cash. Then follow the instructions.
Note: If you have a debit card, there will be no commission, but for transfers from a credit card it will be 3%.
Employees of Apple have been testing Apple Pay Cash since early October. And today developers with the second beta version iOS 11.2 also got access to the function. Additionally, Apple has released a public update to tvOS 11.2.
