APPLE HAS HAD a bad week for software problems, and things much got worse over the weekend with the release of iOS 11.2.

Last week was a really bad week for Apple, with both iOS and macOS falling victim to high profile bugs.

The Cupertino-based tech giant had pushed ahead of the launch date of the iOS 11.2 after the date bug plagued the iPhone and iPad devices, which ultimately led to crashing on December 2 at 12.15 AM. Apple Pay Cash works let Venmo and allows you to send and receive money from friends. This has caused a lot of frustration for users who rely on their phones to be available throughout the day.

You access Apple Pay Cash through the app drawer in the Messages app. In iMessage,  Pay will show up as the first option once you tap the App Store icon next to the text field.

"If the Face ID is not working after a hard reset, contact Apple technical support", - added MacRumors reporters.


You can find out more details about the new payment system in Apple Pay over at Apple's website.

You also need to verify your identity.

So what is Apple Pay Cash? The good news is that even if your primary Apple Pay card is a credit card, Apple Pay Cash defaults to using the debit card on file to help avoid that fee.

You can also invoke Siri and send money, by saying, "Send $10 to John".

There's a new way to send cash to friends and family.

The same applies to transferring money to your bank account, though the overall maximum you can beam to your account over seven days is $20,000. Bank accounts that support the service can also receive transfers from Apple Pay as well. We're hoping that this feature will be widely available in time for the holidays.

When entering your bank account information, you need to input your account number and routing number so that you can link your Pay Cash account to your bank account.
