Apple Pay Cash Now Available in iOS 11.2 Beta 2

Posted November 08, 2017

Users of Apple's watchOS have avoided the predictive text bug, by virtue of not having a keyboard, but have fallen prey to their own odd error over the last few weeks: a hard crash of the device when asked for the weather.

Apple's upcoming iOS 11.2 update is now in beta and the current version delivers a nice list of changes including Apple Pay Cash, a fix for an annoying autocorrect bug, a fix for a calculator issue, and several other notable tweaks.

The actual Apple Pay Cash option is easy to find, too.

The move sees Apple take on P2P payments market leader Venmo, as well as Square Cash and bank-backed Zelle, which has just released its standalone app. While this bug is persistent throughout several different apps not everyone is affected, but Apple has provided a temporary fix for those who are.

News of the bug comes via Lifehacker, and if you want to go straight to source, here's the page that has Apple's suggested workaround. There's no fee to use Apple Pay Cash with a debit card.

Apple Pay Cash uses the debit or credit card linked to your Apple Pay account.

Apple said in its support post the error will be fixed in a future software update.

Beginning today, iPhone users will be able to send and receive cash payments via iMessage once both you and your sending/receiving phone contact install the latest iOS Beta to your phone.

Or, you can prompt a transaction by sending or receiving a message asking for money.

Most of the features should make it into the final iOS 11.2 release though Apple could hold some back for additional testing if needed.
