How Apple Pay Cash Really Works

Reports from several reliable sources claim that one of the leading tablets manufactures, Apple, will be soon rolling out a new iOS 11 feature, called Apple Pay Cash. This new feature will enable iPad and iPhone users to easily transfer and receive money from their friends.

The latest feature, Apple Pay Cash, is actually a part of Apple Pay, which is the mobile payment system of Apple. However, the difference is that this feature will be included in the iMessage app of Apple devices. iPad users should also note the fact that all the money that you receive through Apple Pay Cash will be stored on a virtual card, known as Apple Pay Cash card.

Users who recently purchased an iPad and the ones who are average iPad users might be wondering how Apple Pay Cash really works. Below are a few details that will explain how this new iOS 11 feature works and how you can use it to transfer money to your friends.

Using Apple Pay Cash

It is reported that right after the rollout of the new iOS mobile operating system update, Apple will let users make person-to-person payments. In addition to that, the new Apple Pay Cash payment feature can be accessed through the iMessage app of your iPad. All you need to do is to simply tap on the Apple Pay thumbnail under the redesigned app drawer inside the iMessage app. You will now be able to set the amount, tap on pay or request, and finally approve the transaction.

However, if you are requesting money from one of your friends, you will be able to find a link that will enable you to make the payment in the chat window of the app. On the other hand, if you are paying someone, then you will need to press the Send button and use Touch ID in order to approve the transaction.

The Touch ID sensor guarantees secure authentication for all types of Apple Pay Cash transactions and all these transactions will also be encrypted. The only downfall is that the new Apple Pay Cash payment feature only works on Touch ID supported Apple devices, which means that people who are using an older iPad tablet will not be able to make use of the peer-to-peer payments service.
