Apple Pay wallet is available to iPad Pro series tablets, iPad (5th generation), iPad Air 2, and to a few new iOS devices featuring iOS 11.2 beta. Apple has integrated a feature known as Apple Pay Cash recently into the Apple Pay wallet, which allows users of any of the said iOS devices to send and request digital money through the messaging application. However, only if you configure Apple Pay Cash in iOS 11.2 beta, you can facilitate the same over the messaging app.
- Navigate to Settings app and select Wallet & Apple Pay.
- Turn on the toggle for Apple Pay Cash and choose the same under the Cards It would read Not Set Up if you were yet to tie the feature into a card.
- Select Continue, and choose Agree to Terms and Conditions after reading the transaction limits, fees, and so forth to use the service.
- Tap on Add Debit Card and enter the card details manually. Else, you can place the card at the rear camera of the iPad and details such as Account Name and Account Number would be scanned automatically into the respective columns.
- Choose Next on the right side, and configure Expiration Date and Security Code, the three digit CVV number in the back of the card on the next page.
- Confirm Agree to Terms and Conditions once more.
Once you choose to agree to the conditions, you would get a message notifying the same from the bank and you are good to go.
