Apple Pay Cash is available to iOS 11.2 beta users

Apple Pay Cash surfaced in software betas on Tuesday, meaning the feature will likely launch to the public in the official releases of iOS 11.2 and watchOS 4.2.

Apple has teased the service for some time, first revealing it back in June at WWDC.

A bug in Apple's iOS 11.1 doesn't let you type the letter "i".

When users sending money through a credit card, a three percent fee is applied, while transferring cash from a debit card is free.


Payments can also be triggered by simply asking for money in a message, tapping on a message sent by someone else asking for money or by barking at Siri to do it for you.

Apple announced yesterday that iPhone X goes on sale in 14 more countries on November 24, so the iOS 11 adoption rate should take another leap by early December. Some beta testers saw the Apple Pay Cash option appear in the Messages app. Although it is a bit late in the game, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) doesn't require a dedicated or special app for the transactions. The company also released a second developer beta for watchOS 4.2 and tvOS 11.2 alongside the iOS 11.2 release.

According to TechCrunch, Apple is working with Green Dot to power the financial side of the new service.

To get started, you must join the Apple Public beta program and download iOS 11.2 or later. This new variant of Apple Pay will now allow you to pay friends, family and phone contacts with an iMessage alone.
