Apple Pay Cash starts rolling out to iPhone users in the US

Since iOS 11.2 addresses that bug, Apple made a decision to release it on Saturday rather than waiting until Tuesday.

Apple just released the latest update to iOS 11, which brings with it a whole host of minor bug fixes and one glorious, brand-spankin'-new feature: Apple Pay Cash. This is a little bit faster than the standard 5w plug-in charger included in the box. The update also adds support for fast wireless charging for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. These phones earlier supports fast charging up to 5 watts, and with the new update adds to 7.5 watts of wireless charging. A support document issued by Apple tells users to turn off notifications for all apps on the iDevice before installing iOS 11.2.

Apple has yet to address this bug in an official statement, but until they do there are steps you can take to fix the iPhone restarting on your own. It was only a few weeks ago that I was pulling Apple up for delaying the launch of the HomePod smart speaker, and suggesting that the iMac Pro might also end up being delayed. This was expected as you may recall reports earlier that found that toggling off the radios via the revamped Control Center would not completely disable them, but keep them active in the background to allow users to connect their iPhone or iPad for AirDrop, AirPlay, Apple Pencil, Apple Watch, Hotspot, among others. If this is not done than the update might end up causing more problems than it is created to solve.

One of the main reasons for which you should definitely update to the latest version of iOS is that it comes with a bunch of essential security updates that you are going to want to have. The update for iPhone carries features like improved stock apps which include Notes and Mail, markup tools, additional files applications, etc. That Apple Pay Cash is then sent to the sender, who can either use the money to buy things with Apple Pay (including physical transactions in store), or can deposit the money into a bank account with a waiting period.

Apple's peer-to-peer payment system should be officially rolling out to U.S. -based users today, but according to social media reports and firsthand experience, Apple Pay Cash is not working for everyone.
