Other than that, Apple Pay Cash works in the exact same way under the hood. This includes support for the new Apple Pay Cash on the device.

Apple Pay Cash's person-to-person payment feature is available to users that are at least 18 years old.

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. They can pay by transferring funds using the feature instead of opening an entire app or hitting the ATM to settle the debt. The new update brings support for Apple Pay Cash, a service that enables users send, receive and request money from their contacts using iMessage.

Users can also view their transaction history, including person to person payments as well as purchases they've made in stores, apps and on the web with Apple Pay Cash, right in Wallet. The process is quick and easy for those who have already filed a card with Apple Pay. They can also choose to transfer it from Apple Pay Cash to their bank account. Tap Apple Pay Cash card, then follow the onscreen instructions.

In a transaction, when users get paid, the money they receive is added to their new Apple Pay Cash card that lives in the Wallet app.

Using Apple Pay Cash is free with a debit card.

If you are sending or receiving cash, there is a $1 minimum and a $3,000 maximum.

But despite the delays, it's here now, and it's a significant evolution of Apple Pay, if only for the fact that it directly takes on Google Wallet's and Venmo's peer-to-peer payments feature.

Now a U.S. exclusive, there's no timeframe for the eventual global rollout. In a 7-day timeframe, users can add up to $10,000.
