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.

Beginning December 5, Apple customers in the USA can use Apple Pay to send and receive money with friends and family quickly, easily and securely. The feature is only available for US users as of now. Apple has now released the fine details of the new system and in case you missed it in beta, here's the all-important reminder: you can use the Apple Watch to send payments, too.

Apple Pay Cash supports iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and newer, iPad Pro, iPad 5th Generation, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 (or later) while Apple Watch users need watchOS 4.2 to use Apple Pay Cash.

According to 9to5mac reports, the iPhone X users claim that their device shows an alert that says it is "unable to activate Face ID on this iPhone" after iOS 11.2 update. They can also choose to transfer it from Apple Pay Cash to their bank account. The update also adds support for HomeKit sprinklers and faucets, adds enhanced downhill snow sports tracking for third-party apps, and resolves a variety of bugs, including one that would crash the watch when asking Siri about the weather. This feature was initially introduced in WWDC 2017, now finally every Apple Watch users can enjoy the same.

Other than that, Apple Pay Cash works in the exact same way under the hood. It sources funds from the credit and debit cards you already have linked to Apple Pay, so no need for yet another tedious setup process. Apple Pay, of course, has been available from the original Watch back in 2015, before receiving a wider rollout over the past couple of years.
