Apple Pay Cash: A More Convenient Way To Quickly Send Money

Online Banking and Sending Money

Many people are working abroad and around the world. That’s why it’s important to be able to send money without going through so much hassle. People send money to their loved ones and family for their needs. Online banking is one of the ways wherein we can send money easily. But there is an easier way for iPhone users: the Apple Pay Cash.

Online banking is convenient because it lets you transfer funds from your bank account to another using only the internet. The downside of online banking is that sometimes there are some transactions that you should wait for days before the money is transferred to another account.

There are also fees and those fees are higher if both accounts are not from the same bank.

But then, this is where apps like Apple Pay Cash comes in.

Apple Pay Cash App

Apple Pay Cash lets iPhone users send money through their mobile phones. But this is only limited to Apple users (Sorry Android users). The sender and the receiver should both be iPhone users and have the latest iOS update which is iOS 11.2. You can send payments using your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch.

How to Use Apple Pay Cash

Now, many of you might be wondering how to use this new feature?

  1. You must have the latest iOS version (iOS 11.2).
  2. Go to your Messages App and you can find the Apple Store icon next to the box where you type your messages.
  3. Tap it then tap the Apple Pay icon which color black.
  4. Set up your Apple Pay account by verifying your identity.
  5. Agree to the Terms and Conditions and you’re done.

It’s free to send money only if you use a debit card. Also, Apple is partnered with Green Dot Bank to provide Apple Pay.

Since this is only limited to iPhone users, Android peeps should just find another way to send money through an app. I suggest Facebook Messenger Money App which can be found in this link:

Cupertino-based Apple Inc. has released recently the iOS 11. 2 update . The latest update brings bug fixes and wireless charging. But there’s more to this update, Apple brings also the Apple Pay Cash.

However, Apple made it clear that such feature is not yet live, saying the Apple Pay Cash has a server issues that must be solved.

Apart from the Apple Pay Cash, the Apple iOS 11.2 update now supports the 7.5W Qi Wireless Charging. This means that Apple users will experience faster charging even better.

Such feature is beneficial to either iPhone 8 or iPhone X users because the wireless charger supports the 7.5 W, in contrast, to the Apple’s  5W wireless charging capacity.

In addition to wireless charging, the iOS 11.2 update has an “autocorrect” feature, an issue that users encountered as a problem earlier. For instance, some users claim that the default keyboard would change “it” into “I.T.”

Hence, Apple users expect that iOS 11.2 will fix the autocorrect issue. Aside from this, users noticed that in iOS 11, the Wifi and Bluetooth icons could not be disabled easily.

Apple, in a statement, said the Wifi and Bluetooth feature that does not able was intently done for a purpose.

The Cupertino-based company claims that it does not disable features so that users can connect to their Apple devices.

Should you upgrade?

Given the Apple iOS 11.2 update, this begs the question if you should upgrade or not?  The reason why is that the iOS update comes in varied sizes, depending on the device.

What is clear, however, is the iOS update is roughly 400 MB. Large as it may seem, Apple users will have a remarkable experience in terms of speed and stability of the mobile OS.
