To celebrate the holiday season, and boost Apple Pay adoption, Apple has launched a promotion with select vendors that will award online purchasers that use the payment service a $5 App Store and iTunes gift card.
Documentation seen by Itau Unibanco customers on Monday suggest Apple is on the verge of launching Apple Pay in Brazil, which was first rumored to gain access to the mobile payments service nearly two years ago.
Apple and financial institutions want to make Apple Pay Cash as frictionless as possible for simple person-to-person money transfers. But if you want to send a larger amount of money, or spend your Apple Pay Cash at a retail store, you may need to verify your identity for security purposes. If you want to get that verification out of the way up front, AppleInsider shows you how to do it.
Apple on Tuesday officially launched Apple Pay Cash — a long-awaited peer-to-peer payments feature in iOS 11.2 that allows users to send and receive money from family and friends through Messages. We show you how to set up and use the new functionality in this video.
If you're sending Apple Pay Cash to a friend through iMessage, Apple gives you the option to choose from all of your Apple Pay cards as a source of funds. To avoid unnecessary fees, you'll need to make sure you have a debit card authorized to send money.
In preparation of Giving Tuesday, a global philanthropic movement now in its sixth year, Apple on Monday sent out emails informing customers that they can donate to their favorite charitable causes using Apple Pay.
