WatchOS 4.2 update brings support for Apple Pay Cash and more

Since the launch of Apple Pay in the United States the payment service has been expanded to Canada France Russia Switzerland the United Kingdom Australia Mainland China Hong Kong Italy New Zealand Singapore Japan Spain Ireland and Taiwan

The good folks over at Apple are back in the news, this time making it a bit easier to pay with Apple Pay.

iOS 11.2 is available now as a free update and is required to make person to person payments and use Apple Pay Cash on iPhone and iPad. If you use a debit card to make a payment, there is no charge. Both parties to an Apple Pay Cash transaction must have the feature enabled on their iPhone or Apple Watch. The new feature is only available for the users in the US. Anyone using the iMessage and Wallet apps will be able to receive and send money as soon as they update to iOS 11.2 and restart their devices.

When a user receives a payment from another user, the payment will automatically be added to a new Apple Pay Cash card that lives in their Wallet app.

Apple customers who don't already have Apple Pay set up on their supported device can still receive money from friends and family without needing to install a new app or add a card to Wallet. United States users now have the ability to send and receive peer-to-peer (P2P) payments via Apple Pay in the firm's messaging platform, iMessage.
