Apple Pay Cash is live for all iOS 11.2 users in the US

If your iPhone-toting pal owes you $25 for that concert ticket you bought earlier this summer, there’s never been a better day to recoup the cash.

Apple Pay Cash has been activated for iPhone and iPad users on iOS 11.2 in the United States.

The peer-to-peer payment service makes it easy for contacts to send money back and forth via a new iMessage app.

Users will also be able to instruct Siri to send cash to others (as you can see in the image above).

The funds are sent via a linked credit or debit card, just like a normal Apple Pay transaction. Recipients will see the money stored on an Apple Pay Cash Card which sits within the Wallet app.

Users can spend this on future purchases or transfer it to their bank account.

iOS 11.2 was actually rolled out last week, but the signature feature wasn’t yet activated.

Now Apple has flipped the switch, meaning all US users can begin using the Square Cash and Venmo competitor.

There’s no news yet on when Apple Pay Cash will become available in the United States. Considering Apple Pay was available for quite a while in the US before the UK rollout, it’s not likely to be imminent.
