Apple Pay Cash is on a slow rollout for iOS 11.2

Apple finally fixes

Apple finally fixes "i" autocorrect issue

It's not activated for all users yet: some may not see the Apple Pay Cash toggle in the Wallet & Apple Pay settings page, or the Wallet app inside of the Messages app. The pop-ups will now explain the change. iOS 11.2 has rolled out globally and we urge users to download the latest update, especially if they've found some of the bugs mentioned above.

Apple Pay Cash was announced back in June at WWDC.

Apple Pay Cash works on the iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad (5th generation), iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and later, and Apple Watch. Your friend is instantly notified of the charge from within the Messages app, and the funds are transferred from their Apple Pay Cash Card - which is a fancy name for something that's essentially just the Apple version of your Venmo Balance - to yours. When it's received on the other side, it shows up as an Apple Pay Cash card - sort of a virtual gift card, also stored in the Apple Wallet. Or you can transfer money directly to your bank account. It's an added convince, bringing all of that functionality directly to iMessage, rather than having to mess about with a third-party app.

A number of security bugs are also addressed in the update, though Apple has yet to give details on those fixes. No word yet on a timeframe for global expansion.

The feature appears to still be rolling out in pieces here in the States.
