Apple releases iOS 11.2 and, er, breaks Face ID on iPhone X handsets

Apple finally fixes

Apple has launched the Apple Pay Cash service in the US. You will be able to send or receive cash on all iOS 11.2 iPhone or iPad devices including your Apple Watch (watchOS 4.2 or later installed) if you own one.

So how does Apple Pay Cash work?

You might have to set it up first.

. All cash payments received through the feature will go to your digital Apple Pay card that lives in Apple Wallet.

Choose how much money you want to add to your card. In that case, tap on Add a Different Card. Here's everything you need to know. To verify, enter your SSN and date of birth. Apple is required to collect this information. You can use it to send and receive money in the Messages app. You also have to confirm your legal name and address. But Apple Pay Cash is different.

Tap on the blue arrow next to your payment method to change cards. This has caused a lot of frustration for users who rely on their phones to be available throughout the day.

Just like any iMessage, sending Apple Pay Cash will be confirmed with a Delivered status below it.

Three Super Moons to Be Observed between December and January
Rare sighting of the first and last supermoon of the year will be observed today all over the world including Pakistan. But for those who can't wake up that early, the moon will still look bigger - and brighter - throughout the night.

Users can then use this account to pay for goods and services through Apple Pay.

While our American neighbours have all the fun with Apple Pay Cash, Canadians can only dream of the feature landing here.

There's a new way to send cash to friends and family.

Exactly what this means for Apple's competitors, however, is unknown. Siri will give you a confirmation once the transaction is complete. Users can link their bank account or debit card to the app for transactions. The feature, which Apple debuted Monday, lets people digitally transfer cash into another user's Apple Pay wallet for things like splitting a bar bill after a night on the town in addition to paying for purchases at online and physical retailers that accept Apple Pay. However, in the near future, Apple will roll it out to other regions as well.

More information can be found on Apple's support pages including details on Apple Pay Cash limits, Identity Verification, and Set up help.
