Apple launches Pay Cash in iOS 11.2 Beta 2

Apple has taken the person to person payment to the next level. Now, you will be able to send or receive money within a chat. Apple has launched a new feature Apple Pay Cash that lets the users transact money with Apple Pay in Messages. Not only this, you can pay in the stores, purchase within apps, and on the web as well.

However, the feature is currently available for iOS 11 public beta 2 but it will soon be generally available. In a statement, Apple says,

“Now you can use Apple Pay to pay and get paid right in Messages, or by asking Siri. There’s no app to download, and you can use the cards you already have in Wallet. Send money for books to your son in college. Split a bill. Pay a babysitter. Send and receive from across the table — or across the country. Instantly.”

The prerequisites for using the Apple Pay service are described in the following image.

And, with Apple’s brand name, you don’t have to worry about security and ease of the process, although the company indicates that Apple Pay is not for business-related activities, like paying wages or accepting business payments.
